Designed by Adidas, Argentina's home and away kits pay tribute to the country's historic winnings.

The Soceroos' kits feature Australia's magnificent landscapes and marine life. Its home kit is brightly lit with the colours University Gold, Tour Yellow and Green Noise that subtly portray the forests and animals of the country.
The away kit, on the other hand, is a simple deep blue shirt that represents Australia's marine life and reefs with a pop of colour on its collar.
Adidas has recently released the fiery red home kit for Belgium. The jersey highlights the flag colours of Belgium with designs in red, black, and yellow.
A graphic digital design of flames is also one of this kit's main points, representing the Belgian Red Devils. The Belgium away kit is yet to be officially announced.
Nike takes a textile spin with the classic Brazil colours in their home kit as subtle jaguar patterns are embossed on the shirt. As for the away shirt for the team, a bright blue shirt with light green animal-print accents are seen on the jersey.
Both shirts show 5 stars above the team's seal, representing the 5 times it has won the FIFA World Cup!
Simplicity takes over the Canadian football team's home and away kits. While the home kit takes on the red of the Canadian flag, the away kit is switched to white.
Both shirts show the iconic maple leaf on its crest in bright red.
The Costa Rica national football team debuts their brand new national emblem on a FIFA World Cup kit after its release last December 2021. The new emblem on the shirt is taken from the country’s coat of arms which includes three volcanoes with a gold border.
The home kit shows a base red shirt with a blue band on its sleeves, while the away jersey shows a white shirt with the same blue band.
Croatia's home and away kits imprint their emblem on the shirts on a magnified level. The red and white checkers on the home jerseys are enlarged to represent the national team's emblem.
Its away kit switches up the colour of its checkers to two different shades of blue, similar to the shades seen on Croatia's emblem.
Denmark is back with a minimalist design for this year's FIFA World Cup for its home and away kits. The home kit, coloured in different shades of red, has the team's emblem engraved on the shirt along with the iconic arrows, as seen in previous Denmark jerseys, placed on the sides of the chest.
The away kit switches to a white shirt with a white emblem and the lightest grey shade for the arrows.
Ecuador launches its new national team's emblem for the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022. The shirt, designed by Marathon, uses the Ecuadorian flag's colours and several patterns on its shirts. The home kit, a bright yellow shirt with blue and red linings, shows a zigzag pattern. Its away kit, on the other hand, has a deep blue base with a light geometric pattern. The third kit is a white shirt with very subtle vertical lines.
All shirts also have intricate designs, where "Ecuador" is printed in different languages at the bottom of the shirt.
Keeping it fresh, Nike has designed England's kits for the FIFA World Cup 2022 to be elegant while paying homage to its previous jerseys. England's home kit shows the team's logo on the chest with a white base; a soft gradient blue design travels across the shoulders that are matched with the light and dark blue cuffs on the sleeve.
With a red base and dark blue cuffs, the away kit is a nod to one of the team's collared jerseys in the 90s, the emblem is colourized in a bright blue shade.
The defending champions, France, highlights its many achievements through the kits designed by Nike. Its home kit shows the subtle use of a button on the blue shirt where an oak leaf pattern is printed on the shoulders down to its sleeves. France's flag is also etched on the cuffs of the home kit.
The away kit also dons the French flag, except that it is placed much lower onto the shirt, which highlights some of the greatest moments and monuments of France on a white base shirt.
Germany offers a modern classic look with its jerseys designed by Adidas. The home kit shows a predominantly white shirt with a thick black stripe down the middle. Germany's and Adidas' logos are in the middle of the shirt, printed in gold.
The away kit makes use of a black base shirt with cherry-red geometric patterns and the gold-printed logo in its usual spot. The home and away kits use the German flag's colourway.
Ghana takes inspiration from its flag as it uses a simple one-colour base, designed by Puma, for its kits. The home kit shows a white base shirt with cuffs in the colour of Ghana's flag, and in the middle lies the star symbol.
Its away kit takes a more eye-catching design as it takes the red from the Ghanaian flag. The star symbol, similarly placed in the middle, appears smaller and boxed with the country name and team's emblem.
Japan's kits for this year's FIFA World Cup highlight a three-legged crow origami - an art form that originated there. In both kits, the origami design is blurred to represent speed and the flowing style of Japan's play.
The home kit shows an electric blue shirt with origami printed all over the shirt, while the away kit shows multi-coloured origami printed on the sleeves of a white-based shirt.
Korea's jersey, designed by Nike, draws inspiration from Dokkaebi, legendary creatures from Korean mythology that show incredible abilities. The Global Red of the home kit is complemented by the wild red stripes on the shoulders.
Its away kit takes a different approach to the stripes on the home kit's shoulders and places them across the shirt depicting boldness and energy.
The home and away kits have detailed patterns designed onto the shirts, representing Mexico's culture. Both shirts are designed by Adidas and use the Mexican flag's colourway. The home kit shows a green shirt with heavy dark green zigzag patterns similar to Quetzalcoatl's (an Aztec deity) headdress.
Its away kit incorporates the use of Mixtec art in deep red, which represents the serpent body of Quetzalcoatl's depicting the physical abilities of humans.
The home and away kits of the Atlas Lions make use of the Moroccan flag colourway of red and green. Its home kit shows a striking red shirt with a dark green collar and cuffs. A bold dark green rectangle is printed across the chest along with the national team and Puma logos.

The home and away kits of the Netherlands, as designed by Nike, represent the sports and culture of the country. The bright orange base shirt and deep shades of orange for its home kit depict a lion's mane, similar to the lion found on its emblem - a historic symbol of the Netherlands.
Its away kit is much simpler but meaningful as the striking blue is debossed with lines all over the shirt. The design is meant to portray how football and culture influence each other in the Netherlands.
Nike takes Poland's rich heritage to heart with the home and away kits for this year's World Cup. The home kits show a white base shirt with details of a white eagle's feathers and nest - the same eagle seen on the country's emblem.
The away kits boast a red shirt with the collar and cuffs striped white. Both shirts make use of Poland's national colours.
A fresh design will be seen for the Portugal team as they don a half-Pepper red and half-Gorge green shirt for their home kit. Split diagonally, the home kit depicts the Portuguese flag wrapped around the body.
The away kit is simple yet bold, with a thick rectangle of red and green printed across the chest. The away kit uses an off-white shirt base to stand out from the bright white kits that will be found throughout the tournament.
Qatar's home kit takes the shade Desert Maroon all over the shirt as it meets white trimmings on its sleeve cuffs, depicting the Qatari flag. The positioning of the QFA emblem on the upper-middle part of the chest highlights Qatar's position as the host of the worldwide event.
The away kit, on the other hand, portrays the coastline of Qatar as the shirt is designed with patterns of pearls and graphic overlays. According to Nike, when in motion, the kit is meant to resemble a "sandstorm swirling in the arid sun".
Inspired by the Saudi Arabian Flag, Nike has designed Saudi Arabia's kit using the flag's colours - green and white. The home kit is a white based shirt with highlights of feathers and leaves in the shade of green.
The away kit is imprinted with the leaf pattern in shades of dark and light green from the country's flag colours.
Much like the kits of other countries, the Senegal kit takes its designs and colourways from its national flag. The home kit, having a white base, has a bold design on its chest with flag colours and the star symbol in the middle.
The away kit has much more going on as the middle design from Puma contains not only the team's emblem but also the team's flag and nickname "Les Lions de la Teranga".
Serbia takes on a red and gold colour scheme for its home kit with subtle designs of crosses across the shirt. Their new emblem also makes a debut for this year's tournament. The home kit's cuffs and inner collar are lined in a stylish gold manner.
Like other Puma away kit designs, the away kit places a box in the middle of the shirt lined in gold. The team's new emblem is greyscaled for the away kit.
Spain's famous deep red colourway makes a timeless statement as it retains the colour scheme throughout the years for its home kit. The home kit borrows its colours from the national flag, as seen on the trimmings and details of the shirt.
Spain's away kit takes inspiration from the country's logo when it last hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1982. The blue base of the away kit and the fun circular graphics give the shirt a refreshing design.
Switzerland sticks to its flag's colour scheme as red and white dominate the shirt. Both shirts are designed with a v-neck shirt with the football team's emblem and the country flag printed on the chest.
The home kit, based in red, has white stripes across its upper chest and shoulders. The white away kit focuses on the centre and places the stripes right in the middle of the shirt.
Crafted by Kappa, Tunisia's home and away kit boasts of the country's red and white flag colours. The home kit is a predominantly red shirt with a graphic on the front of the shirt. The graphic on the shirt is based on the 'Armor of Hannibal', a piece of armour found in Tunisia in 1909.
On the other hand, the away kit takes the same design as the home kit but swaps its colours for a predominantly white shirt.
The USA's kits for this year's tournament unify multi-cultural, inter-generational, and various sports disciplines in their designs. For the home kit, the white-based shirt is simple yet meaningful: the enlarged emblem placed on the middle of the chest is reminiscent of the country's national basketball team, while the double Swooshes on the sleeves are similar to what is designed on American football jerseys.
The away kit shows a vibrant tie-dye print on its jersey, bringing a diverse and youthful twist to the pitch. The away kit displays the same enlarged emblem and double Swooshes on the shirt.
Puma takes an innovative approach with the Uruguay kits, specifically the home kit, as it designs the jersey in blue, white, and gold - the colours of the country's flag. The blue home kit features a white button on the middle of its collar, gold designs of the Puma logo, and the team's emblem.
Using the same colour scheme, the away kit in white features the Uruguay flag, the national team's emblem, and its nickname "La Celeste" in the middle as a faint blue line runs through it.
A note-worthy design on this kit is the four stars that lie on top of it, which indicate the times the country has won the World Cup.
Drawing inspiration from the flag of Wales, Adidas' design for the home kit shows a bright red shirt with diagonal patterns all over it. The “fire-breathing” design takes after the red dragon as seen on the flag of Wales and the emblem.
On the other hand, its away kit is predominantly white with a drop-tail hem. The splash of red and green through its collar, sleeves, and trimmings is also a nod to the country's flag.
