Euro 2024 kits ranked: France have gone retro, while Scotland have tapped into their tartan roots… but which team will have the best and worst shirts in Germany this summer?

The anticipation is only rising ahead of Euro 2024 kicking off on Friday night when hosts Germany take on Scotland in Munich.

Several teams will fancy their chances of glory this summer in what promises to be a fascinating tournament.

And one of the highlights for those watching on will be seeing the kits that their nation turns out in.

Most of these kits have already had their first outing in recent international breaks, with England first sporting their new look in friendlies against Brazil and Belgium in March.

But, who has the best kit? Below, Mail Sport ranks the attire each team will be wearing at the tournament this summer…

10 – Netherlands

Fans always know exactly what to expect from a Netherlands home kit given they are nicknamed the Oranje.

That is no different here as Nike have opted for a very crisp orange strip that features a navy collar and navy accents.

But the away kit is where they have decided to push the boat out a little bit.

It is predominantly navy, but features the iconic orange accents reflecting the Dutch art movement De Stijl, while hidden within the details are subtle lion and lioness designs. 

It’s a pretty solid, if unspectacular effort and that’s why this makes the top 10.

9. Portugal

This will be the last tournament Nike are Portugal’s kit manufacturer and they haven’t exactly gone out with a bang with the home kit.

It is a traditional, if basic effort, but features a slightly brighter red than usual on the shirt, coupled with their usual green shorts.

The away kit is where Nike have really excelled and it could become a cult favourite.

It encompasses a light blue mosaic design that pays homage to Portugal’s traditional architecture.

With a solid home strip, coupled with an intriguing away design, Roberto Martinez’s side edge inside our top 10.

8 – France

World Cup runners-up France have had their Euro 2024 kits made by Nike and both of them are pretty stunning.

The home shirt pays homage to the kits of the 1960s featuring a large cockerel crest on the bright blue body, with the tricolour French flag on the collar.

The away shirt is also quite something, with a main white colour, but the details are where it really sets itself apart.

The pinstripes on the strip fade from blue to red, making up the France flag, in a call back to the away kits of the 1980s and 2000s.

7 – Slovakia 

Slovakia were late to the party on their Euro 2024 kits, releasing them after several other teams.

However, we are only yet to see a home kit for Francesco Calzona’s side, although it is widely expected their away strip will be in the traditional white colours.

The home kit provides a neat and tidy look though, using Nike’s traditional Vapor template, with the red trim in the underarm area of the sleeves adding to the design, with this surrounded by the main blue colour.

The accent on the collar is also red and the big badge means this strip pushes itself into seventh place.

6 – Austria

Puma have gone all out for the kit of this year’s potential dark horses, Austria.

The home shirt for Ralf Rangnick’s side is red with a white collar and sleeve cuffs, while a pattern celebrating Austria’s rich history is on its main body.

Although the home kit may have tried something, the away strip has far less going on.

It is a pretty simple white and black design, although vibrant blue accents on the shirt do pop out at you, ensuring Austria will be one of the best-dressed sides this summer.

5 – Slovenia 

Slovenia may be relative minnows when it comes to the tournament, but if qualification for the knockout stages was done purely on kit quality, they would definitely be there.

The home kit is an extremely smart white look with a fun diamond pattern running down the centre of the shirt, while mountains are embroidered on the chest.

Again, like several other tops, it is a design inspired by the nation, with the mountains a nod to the country’s terrain.

The away kit is similarly smart, but this time the design is Azure, with a navy blue trim.

4 – Scotland 

Scotland will be at their second consecutive Euros and their home strip is a traditional look we have come to expect.

The navy kit features yellow trim and numbering with white Adidas stripes, but the real standout part of this kit is the tartan pattern that runs across the shirt.

As for the away kit, it is a much simpler set up from Adidas for Steve Clarke’s side and is quite the departure from what we usually see.

The pale blue strip features purple stripes that are reportedly tartan with the kit based on an ‘iconic Scotland strip from the 1990s’.

All in all, Adidas have smashed this one out the park and Scotland will be looking very smart out in Germany this summer

3 – England

England’s home kit caused controversy upon its release after a ‘playful’ change to the St George’s Cross caused uproar.

But the home kit itself is a clean choice from Nike, where the white base with a navy collar and navy and red accents will give fans a sense of a throwback to Euros gone by.

The away kit is similarly smart after Nike made the decision to move away from the more traditional red offering.

The all blue effort features gold trim including a monochrome gold Three Lions crest. 

Both strips are clean and likely to be hugely popular on the streets of Germany and England this summer.

 2 – Italy

Italian kits are often easy on the eye and their Euro 2024 look is no different with the home blue strip very smart indeed.

Predominantly one colour, it also encapsulates the Azzurri’s rich history and the three colours of their national flag – white, red and green.

The away kit is similarly classical, with the white colour boosted by the conventional tricolour trim on the shoulders.

Both the home and away strips have the letter ‘I’ running through them, for Italy, while ‘L’Italian Chiamo’, which translates as ‘Italy has called’ and is a line from the national anthem – is printed on the back of the shirt collars.

Italy will hope to defend their title in a typically classy kit.

1 – Germany

As to be expected, Germany’s home shirt is predominantly white and provides a neat base layer to tee up the rest of the jersey.

The tricolour of the national flag adorns the shoulders of the Adidas home strip and there is a subtle design on the body of the shirt. 

The home kit is clean and simple, but the away kit for Julian Nagelsmann’s side is definitely more lively.

The pink strip fades into a purple spiked design towards the bottom of the shirt and is reportedly inspired by the ‘digital world of the metaverse’.

Overall, the simple but chic home shirt, coupled with the eye-catching away kit, puts Germany to the top of the list in what is probably the best shirt they have had in a generation.

Honourable mention – Belgium (home) and quirkiest kit Belgium (away) 

Narrowly missing out on the top 10 is Belgium, and while they may count themselves unfortunate, the Red Devils have scooped up the double award of honourable mention and quirkiest kit. 

Both their strips for Euro 2024, which will be provided by Adidas, are slightly different to the usual Belgium outlook. 

The home kit is a little deeper in red than usual, with it said to be an ode to the foundation of the Royal Belgian Football Association in 1895, while it also has the crown of the FA crest above the national team badge. 

The away kit is the one that is likely to grab the headlines though, with the sky blue shirt and brown shorts inspired by iconic cartoon character Tintin, who was created by Belgian cartoonist Herge.

It is likely to be hugely popular among supporters

Tintin was a multi talented Belgian reporter, who travelled the world with his dog Snowy and was created by Herge in 1929. 

He has remained popular ever since, with statues and murals of him seen throughout Belgium and he is most certainly the country’s favourite cartoon.

The ode to the country’s history of art and design will see Tintin’s famous blue sweater, white collar, white socks and tan chinos reflected in the various elements of Belgium’s alternative strip and it is sure to be one flying off the shelves over the coming months.  

 

Worst kit – Albania 

It promises to be a big summer for Albania, who qualified for just their second ever Euros after topping a group including Poland and the Czech Republic.

But, unfortunately, their kit for the tournament is rather dull and although that may seem harsh, it is partly explained by manufacturers Macron not designing them a specific strip for the tournament.

The home kit, which was initially released in March 2023, sees a deep red base shirt with a black collar, with the collar adding smartness to the look, although it is a pretty plain effort.

The away strip follows the same design, except the base colour of the top is white.

However, the shirt is boosted by a unique pattern bespoke to Albania featuring on the shirt, although it is still a relatively uninspiring effort.
