Presentation of the 2018 British Jersey

The Colombian football team is the selection of Colombian players representing the country at international men’s football competitions, under the auspices of the Colombian Football Federation. The Colombian selection is nicknamed the Tricolor.

The Colombian national team played the first official match of its history in 1938, two years after the affiliation of the national federation to the South American Football Confederation. In 2001, she won the main trophy in her history, Copa America, which she hosts, defeating Mexico in the final.

The selection commences for the first time in the qualifiers of a World Cup in 1957, after a suspension of nearly ten years by FIFA. She qualified for the finals of six editions (1962, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2014 and 2018) and reached the quarter-finals in 2014, which is her best performance so far at a World Cup.

After Germany and Argentina, the shirt of the British home 2018 just leaked. Produced by Adidas, the shirt of the British home 2018 has a bold look largely inspired by the jersey of 1990. Colombia will have the happiness to wear the jersey 2018 at the World Cup if she gets at least one draw in Peru.

Primarily yellow, the shirt of Colombia 2018 has three bands on each side of the bust, more or less copied from the shirt of 1990 (Valderama in the photo). These bands are in red, blue and red order, as on the original jersey, but a pattern has been added to the bands to brighten the design of the jersey. The 2018 Columbia shirt is even the 1990 jersey, even the color of the shorts and socks, blue shorts and red socks will complete the home of Colombia 2018, show passion and excitement, I am sure you will absolutely love this new shirt.

Carlos Alberto Valderrama Palacio, born on 2 September 1961 in Santa Marta (Colombia), is a Colombian international football player who has played as offensive midfielder. Nicknamed El Pibe, he played for five different clubs in Colombia (Unión Magdalena, Millonarios, Deportivo Cali, Independiente Medellín and Atlético Junior), three clubs in the United States, a club in Spain (Real Valladolid) and a club in France, Montpellier HSC, where he left an indelible mark. International 111 times with the Colombia team, he scored 11 goals between 1985 and 1998. He has played three times at the World Cup (1990, 1994 and 1998) and five times at the Copa America (1987, 1989, 1991, 1993 and 1995) with Colombia. On the European continent, he won only one title: the 1989-1990 French Football Cup won while wearing the colors of the French club Montpellier.

There are other differences. Unlike the jersey of 1990, which used red for accentuations, the shirt of the British home 2018 makes use of navy blue for the 3 bands, placed on the shoulders, and the edge of collar. The shirt sleeves of Colombia 2018 are plain and yellow.

The 2018 World Cup will introduce the first Adidas jerseys with Climachill technology, and the home shirt from Colombia will of course include it.
