This is the new France Home football shirt and kit by Nike, for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, which will be available here.

France sneaked through to the finals by virtue of an exciting 3-0 victory against Ukraine at the Stade de France, overturning a 2-0 loss in the first leg.

Creative Football T-Shirts at Footytees.com - Featuring prints by a range of talented artists

The shirt is a deep blue in a denim-styled material effect - in tribute to the romanticised French birthplace of the jeans fabric ("de Nîmes") - the shorts are a return to white and, similarly, the socks revert to red as first choice, recreating the famous FFF "Tricolore" look.

The retro embroidered crest (even on the match shirt) is inspired by the 1958 version.

The match version of the shirt includes the usual Nike technology (Dri-FIT, mesh, laser-cut ventilation holes) keeping body temperature regulated and wicking sweat away from the players' bodies.

The fabric comes from recycled bottles as is now standard with high-profile Nike releases (100% recycled polyester in the shorts, 96% recycled polyester in the shirt and 78% in the socks).

Maybe it's just my eyes but what is the actual shade of blue used? In some photos it looks like a Scottish rugby jersey and in others it looks more like the shade of blue used on the flag!

Hold up, wasn't this shirt released way back in 2011?! Oh, I see what they did there...change the colour of the collar and stick a retro badge on it! Genius!!

'Nike Kit Designer' must seriously be the easiest job to do in the world :zzz

Nike executives must have been bricking it the last couple of days - 40million big ones down the p.i.s.s.e.r!!!!

Are they just releasing images or will it go on sale immediately to cash-in on the euphoria from last night?

So is the FIFA all one colour rumour complete nonsense? This kit goes completely against it.

Maybe it just means Adidas have messed up big time and decided to give all their kits the one colour treatment. If so they have messed up big time. This kit (although not the best design) tthe importance of identity through the correct colour combination, if this was all blue like their kit last night it would look shit.

Adidas's lead designer here in the US was quoted as saying that the DFB wanted white shorts, so as to better emphasize the red chevron.

That may or may not be true. But it does remind you that nothing gets through without the team's approval. If Spain wanted blue shorts with their primary kit, they would have them.

If that's true then that's ridiculous. Maybe if the red chevron design had some relevance to Germany I'd understand but as far as I'm aware it doesn't. It slightly resembles the 1990 design but at least that used the 3 colours of Germany's flag which complimented the black shorts well.

The chevron has a thin black stripe at the top and a thin metallic gold one at the bottom.

The red stripe is three-toned, suggesting their three World Cups.

You hit the nail on the head there. Just because Spain and Germany went with one color kits this year doesn't mean it's because of some new FIFA rule, it just means that those teams, and a few others, decided to go with that style.

A lot of people are pointing to the rulebook which states that teams must have a predominately dark and a predominately light kit. I don't think this is intended to make teams wear one color kits or anything like that, I think it's just so you don't, for example, have a dark blue shirt as your primary and a black shirt as your change.

Yes, but 85% of what FIFA, and especially Sepp Blatter, say is complete rubbish. Which is why this kit rumour is fairly believable.

Glad they went back to blue white and red kits instead of all blue. If only they took it further and included the red horizontal stripe and white stripes underneath, like France have had on so many of their shirts in their history

Thank [censored] its blue, white and red, well done the FFF ignoring the stupid recommendations from FIFA. The blue colour is really nice too, the denim effect looks good.

The badge is embroided too, hopefully all the nike kits will have embroided crests. But the Cock could have been a bit bigger.

I have to say, I think all this stuff about 'one colour for the World Cup' is just very stupid people assuming that Adidas's design trends apply to everyone. I may be wrong, but I don't think FIFA have ever, at any point, demanded teams wear one colour. They stipulate that teams have to register one 'predominant light' and one 'predominantly dark' kit. Which is pretty obvious to anyone - ensuring we don't have two teams playing each other in light shirts. Doesn't say anywhere that the shorts need to be the same colour.

No it's the kit Scotland ( joint oldest international team and home of international football) has been wearing since 1869/70. The French colour is royal blue and the rugby union squad changed to dark blue in 2007 only to try and to psyche the All Blacks. Hope it is more a nod towards the Auld Alliance.

I thought teams weren't allowed to have different colours on their shirts and shorts at the WC. Like Spain, Germany and Argentina.

I never stated anything about demanding, just recommending. I was making the point that its good that nike are seemingly ignoring them, and adidas are not. On the "stupid people" comment, with the buying of the world cup by Qatar, THEN realising that if its held in summer, then they would end up with players dying of heatstroke, the vast corruption, the general brown-nosing and the failure to do anything meaningful to crack down on racism, assuming that Sepp censored Blatter would pass down a rule on one colour kits was easy to assume, and pretty forgiveable. Anyone who assumed almost certainly is smarter than Blatter.

Pas mal, the important thing is that THEY WEAR BACK THEIR REAL COLOURS INSTEAD OF THE E-U !!!!

Those flag colors are what transcends you, those are what inspire future players growing up, helped by a strong identity in a multi-ethnical country. Remember that France 98 are the most cosmopolitan world champions ever with descendants of Kalmouk-Armenia (Djorkaeff), Algeria (Zidane), New-Caledonia/Kanak (Karembeu), etc...

Thierry Henry and many others say that the national jersey is like a superhero costume. Even fans can feel that and totally understand. It's different when you only wear the top for whatever purpose on a pitch or elsewhere, compared to wearing the combination of blue top, white shorts, red socks, it makes you feel more matchday ready. True players know what I mean.

Adidas have been repetitive and mostly unimaginative i.m.o. in their France kit designs since 2004, but they did a great job with the latest 2014 Rugby FFR kit combining different shades of blue from great eras. It just make you say "wow", because you see the real effort of combining French tradition/values with authenticity, uniqueness and originality in design, you have to have in mind when designing anything creative that it has to be "it". It has to be the best thing you can come up with, at least in the intention.

Nike has yet to do that with Les Bleus in soccer, unlike when they handled FFR, during which some designs were interesting and representative enough (except for the same tendency to destroy the tricolore combination).

Really funny ! I voted you up ; the euphoria of qualifying doesn't erase the fact that les Bleus are still lead by pretty much the same bunch who went on strike at Knysna. Benzema is still offside too often, not compared to Falcao or Cavani, but compared to Giroud, who's not even world-class despite his great attitude and work ethic. Karim still needs to match the demands of where he's at carrier-wise. He's been struggling because he's not equipped mentally to elevate his own standards. Thankfully, his professional entourage (which includes the Bernabeu) keeps him in check.

Antoine Griezmann looks good enough to join Deschamps' men but he's still banned from all national sides after partying with M'Vila & co during an important playoff duty last year.

Michel Hidalgo said that a great team has to be made of great men first, like those he had in the likes of Platini, Giresse, Tigana, Tr?
