Egypt Away Shirt 2010-12

Egypt’s away shirt for the 2010 African Cup of Nations, which could debut against Mozambique on the 16th of January, pays reverence to Egypt’s eminent history. The gold highlights the wealth and love of the luxury in Ancient Egypt. The three Puma logos on the shirt are in black, and so are the six stars representing the Pharaohs’ six ANC successes, going with the shirt like… well, like black and gold.

The shirt also features white triangular cuffs, and thin red and white paintbrush stripes down the front, which give it an African feel. The stripes replicate the colourful body paint worn by the African fans. There is a mesh material extending from the sleeves round to the back of the shirt, signalling the next generation of Puma technology. It will undoubtedly help the players combat the harsh Angolan climate, as it is designed for added movement and breathability.

History tells us that white has been the most common colour for Egypt’s away strips, but that is by no means consistent. And the new shirt is going against the proverbial grain, by dedicating the colour scheme to the country’s rich history. The shirt will only feature once in Group C, but could deputise again if the Pharaohs progress further.
