Three potential Portugal jersey designs for the 2022 World Cup have been leaked online and could be the worst of the entire tournament.
Fernando Santos’ team is hoping to secure its second title in Qatar next winter, having won Euro 2016 six years ago.
This will likely be the last World Cup in the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo career, which could motivate Nike to choose which shirt to wear.
Well, you will be wrong. The highly reliable Foti Headlines claims that Portugal will wear a “red and green half-and-half design” to celebrate 25 years of their relationship with the sports giant.
They aren’t sure how to implement the pattern, but they did share a few concepts on what they expect you can check out below.
They are definitely eye-catching, aren’t they? But not in the best way.
Fans reacted online and thought the two-tone split was a joke at first.
One of them commented: “But what is this? Terrible! »
Another said: “I don’t think I will buy a Portugal shirt this year.”
A third tweeted: “What the hell is this? Is this a joke?”
While one added: “Hot garbage is coming.”
Ronaldo doesn’t seem to care what he’s wearing as long as he’s scoring goals for fun.
The Manchester United striker scored twice in the 4-0 win over Switzerland on Sunday in the Nations League.
William Carvalho gave them a perfect start in the first quarter of the hour, before Ronaldo doubled their lead in the 35th minute. Teammate Bruno Fernandes put the ball on a plateau for the 37-year-old who did nothing wrong.
Four minutes later, Ronaldo added a third goal, his second in the match, and cameras caught his mother crying in the stands.
And Joao Cancelo scored the three points in the second half.
Santos praised Captain Ronaldo in his post-match interview and emphasized that he was always there for the big moments.
“The captain is the best in the world,” said Maes Fotibol.
“He has arrived. When you say he’s the best in the world…how many words are needed? I’ve said it I don’t know how many times.”
These exhibits are not out of the ordinary. Fan support? He is the captain of the team, the paramount example. »
Portugal will resume competition on Thursday against the Czech Republic.
