Official Nike Australia football shirts available with player kit printing. Initially wearing the sky blue of New South Wales and Maroon of Queensland, Australia switched to their traditional sporting colours of gold and green in 1924. The Socceroos qualified for their first World Cup in 1974 but were eliminated in the first round after their largely amatuer team failed to score a single goal. Their golden generation saw the qualify for the 2006 World Cup, and the team has been ever-present ever since. In 2015 they won their first major tournament, the AFC Asian Cup on home soil.
