After missing the 2010 World Cup, Croatia are hoping to have a good showing at Euro 2012. They definitely were not given any favors with the group they landed in. They will have to face Spain, Ireland, and Italy who will all be tough to beat. One good thing that Croatia can look forward to is the fact that they will be wearing some great looking jerseys.
The new Nike Croatia away jersey looks great and still incorporates all the national team colors. Traditionally, Croatia’s home jersey always consists of red and white checkers throughout. The away jersey still features this checkerboard pattern, but tones it down a bit. The primary color is royal blue with the checkerboard pattern on the left chest and shoulder. The left chest also has the Croatia crest stitched on for added authenticity.
This jersey, in addition to looking great, also feels great. It is made out of 100 percent polyester for a light and comfortable feel. It features Nike’s Dri-Fit technology, which helps keep you cool and comfortable. These features will be nice now that summer is upon us. Instead of having a heavy jersey that puts you on the brink of heat stroke, these will be comfortable to wear while you support your team at Euro 2012.
If you are a Croatia fan and don’t want to wear the full checkerboard jersey, this away jersey provides a nice second option. It still has the checkerboard to maintain a style that Croatia has become known for, while toning the amount of checkers down. The blue also looks great with the red and white. Nike has done a nice job of coming out with great looking jerseys for Euro 2012 and this one is no exception. Now that there is less than a month left until the start of the tournament, I would head over to SoccerPro.com today and order one of these great looking jerseys, so you have it in time for Euro 2012.
