Crap Kits: Spain Spill Their Nachos

Spain looked like they’d woken up on the sofa with a violent hangover and nacho cheese spilt all over them at Euro 2016.

Let’s face it, we’ve all been there.

Officially, Adidas’ abstract design of yellow and red triangular shapes on a white background represented Spain’s tiki-taka style of play and Fernando Torres’ goal in the Euro 2012 final.

To us, it looked like last night’s bowl of Doritos, cheese and salsa, washed down with pint after pint of San Miguel that had all not been digested too well.

Of course one man’s crap shirt is another man’s classic, but in our mind there’s something to be said for the addition of on-field glory into the making of a great football shirt.

After a rich diet of success and three consecutive major tournament triumphs, Spain wore the nacho cheese kit during their hangover period after leaving the 2014 World Cup in Brazil at the group stage.

Spain wore these shirts in Bordeaux for their Euro 2016 group stage match against Croatia where Alvaro Morata scored their goal in a 2-1 defeat.

The presence of individual bespoke graphic design in football shirts is to be applauded and Adidas rarely get these things wrong.

Football kits divide opinion and come down to a matter of personal taste, but this one had a little too much flavour for our liking.

Was Spain’s Nacho Cheese shirt to your taste?

  1. Tweeted this too, but I liked this shirt. Looked great with the white shirt and socks. Feel like it’ll get more love as it ages, in a way similar to the USA 1994 Stars/Denim shirt. That is now considered a bold & graphic classic, no?
