Argentina: A Brief History of the Federation and Its Kit
The success of the Argentine National Football Team has been eclipsed only by Brazil on the South American continent. Argentina have won the World Cup twice (1978 and 1986), the Olympic Tournament twice (2004 and 2008), and the Confederations Cup once (1992). They have also won the Copa América 14 times, a record shared with Uruguay. A federation doesn't achieve such success without legendary players, of which Argentina certainly has had its share, including in modern history such greats as Gabriel Batistuta, Roberto Ayala, Javier Zanetti, and Lionel Messi. Perhaps no Argentine footballer will ever atop the legendary status of the great Diego Maradona, whose masterful performance during the 1986 World Cup earned him the Golden Ball. England fans will never forget the two goals scored during the quarterfinal match, one now known as "the Hand of God", the other "the Goal of the Century", forever cementing his legend on the national stage.
A Closer Look at the Argentina Kit and Other Argentina Merchandise
For over a century now the Argentina Home Kit has been garnished with the unmistakable vertical white and sky blue stripes, modeled after the Argentina Flag. The Argentina Away Kit of modern times has been of a solid blue, darker in tone than the stripes of the Argentina Home Shirt. The Argentina Crest that adorns the Argentina Home Shirt and Argentina Away Shirt has at its center the letters AFA (Asociación del Fútbol Argentino), topped once again with the sky blue and white stripe pattern and bordered by ornamental vines. Produced and distributed by adidas, officially licensed Argentina gear also includes Argentina T-shirts, Argentina Hats, Argentina Scarves, and other Argentina Training Wear as well as Argentina Accessories to meet the demands of the worldwide fan base of this celebrated team.
