Look, it’s not bad, it’s just a bit plain. The subtle square print in the shirt’s fabric is an OK touch, but the black-and-red colour scheme of Egypt should be a kit designer’s dream. For whatever reason, Adidas have produced one of their safer designs of the tournament.

There’s nothing wrong with a plain kit, but the World Cup should be a chance to push the boundaries a bit. Think of a memorable kit from major tournaments gone by, and the chances are they aren’t safe or bland. This one happens to be both.
