This is the new France away shirt that the French national team will wear in their European qualifiers during the 2011/12 season. The shirt is a radical new one from the Nike stable for Les Bleus and comes on the heels of their unveiling of the blue home strip.
As you can see, the new France away shirt is white in colour with horizontal stripes across it. The Nike logo is on the right of the shirt while the FFF ( France Football Federation) Logo is on the right of the shirt.
French skipper Florent Malouda, along with his team mates, was present at the unveiling. Malouda’s team mate William Gallas is currently the oldest player in the French squad after Laurent Blanc’s culling of the squad after their 2010 World Cup fiasco. Gallas plays for Tottenham Hotspur, who were once sponsored by Mansion, an Asian giant in the online casino market. Spurs of course, are now sponsored by Autonomy Corp.
This French away shirt was worn for the first time by the team in their international fixture against Croatia on March 29 at the Stade de France. It was originally supposed to be worn in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Luxembourg, but the FFF and Nike had a late change of mind that resulted in the date being postponed to March 29 in the friendly against the Croats.
The shirt also has a slogan in French that translates to saying ” Our Differences Unite Us”.
Will France enjoy a victorious start to their campaign in their away strip against the Croats? Several fans of Les Bleus will be certainly be putting their money on the side and are expected to have a punt or two.
