Mexico Kit: Through the years

Design: Adidas have gone in a different direction with Mexico's 2014 outfit, adding "a graphic element expressing the strength, passion and pride of an entire nation” -- lightning bolts travelling from the sleeves to the teams badge in the centre of the chest. The outfit is completed by white shorts with red trim and red and white socks in the same M-shape as the lightning bolts on the chest form.

Short history: Of all the regular contestants in World Cup competition, Mexico have changed their kit design more dramatically than most. All three colours of the national flag have been used as the main element of the side's home kit, with red being the predominant colour at many early tournaments. While 1958 brought about a move to the green colour scheme with which they are now associated, they have since regularly appeared in both red and white as an alternative colour scheme. France '98 brought one of Mexico's more interesting kits to the fore, with a tribal pattern etched into the standard green, although subsequent designs have mellowed somewhat in comparison.

The greatest kit: Where football kits are concerned, simplicity can be a virtue and on Mexico's first trip to the knockout stages in 1970, this was most definitely the case. Dark green, with a white and red V-neck colour and matching trim on the arms, the kit incorporated the country's national colours into a neat and recognisable design.
