This is the new Egypt home shirt for the 2008 Africa Cup in Ghana made by Puma. Puma act as technical supplier to Angola, Cameroon, Morocco, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Togo, Egypt and Tunisia, half of the 16-team field at the Africa Cup tournament that runs from January 20 to February 10.
Each team has a new shirt, which features anatomically placed seams and raised front collar for superior aerodynamics, as well as ergonomically placed stretch insert 'flex bow' for ideal freedom of movement.
The shirt is part of PUMA’s v1.08 collection that islaunched globally this January 2008, featuring lightweight moisture-wicking materials, mesh layers and welded-technology in its performance apparel pieces.
The shirt provides improved freedom of movement and fit from older versions, including special back construction with two-piece mesh fabric.
The inner mesh layer includes small holes and is hydrophilic – thereby absorbing water and wicking away a player’s sweat, while the outer layer provides the ideal smooth surface to print the player names and numbers.
