For some years now, Uruguay has been in a state of transition. Their older veterans in Cavani, Suarez, and Godin have fallen off their peak. Youngblood has come through to fill in the gaps left behind by their quality. Players like Matias Arezo, Darwin Nunez, and Federico Valverde have come to become the support of the team. While the veterans lead the team.
Uruguay won 2 of the first 4 world cups they participated in which has established them as a footballing powerhouse. But since their triumph back in 1950, they have never come close to challenging the established dominant sides, despite always producing some of the best young and exciting players the world has ever seen. They are one of the most successful sides in South America, with 15 titles to their name from 45 participations from a total of 47 tournaments.
Uruguay Team FIFA World Cup Kits
Puma is the kit manufacturer for Uruguay, and the emblem of the Uruguayan FA is on the opposite side of the Puma logo, and this is the case for both sets of jerseys. They have their iconic kit redesigned for the world cup, with their second kit being an inverse of their first kit in some senses.
Their first kit is predominantly a light shade of blue with white appearing subtly in the sleeves and along the collar to personify and signify the national flag. Although many might think there is nothing special about the design of the kit, they would be right. But the Uruguayan kits have always followed this pattern with their first kit, and they are maintaining that trend as their heritage.
Their second kit, however, looks unique in that it is mostly white. One would not be wrong to think that blue was the main colour for the kit. The lighter shades of blue appear vertically through stripes. And the highlights appear along the sleeves and the collar, as well as in the centre. The central design is a common theme in second kits made by puma, as this isn’t the first kit to use that idea.
