This is the new Argentina home shirt 16/17, the Argentine national team’s new uniform for Copa America Centenario in the United States and other international fixtures (World Cup 2018 qualifiers and friendlies) during the 2016/17 season. Made by Adidas, the new Argentina Copa kit is here seen modelled by Lionel Messi, fresh from starring in Barcelona’s Champions League win over Arsenal, and the likes of Angel di Maria (ex Manchester United) and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
True to Albiceleste tradition, the shirt keeps the country’s traditional light blue and white stripes. Black trim is found on the crew neck and the sleeve cuffs, with the Adidas logo also in black. The famed Adidas stripes are on the side, but in white.
The strip will make its debut in Argentina’s upcoming clash against reigning Copa holders Chile later this month.
