On Monday morning, Canada Soccer revealed the kits that will be worn in the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.
The first kits under Nike, fans were hoping to see some of the company’s breathtaking designs, as worn by many clubs and countries around the world, but were left a bit disappointed.
The kits are just plain red and white, but lack any smaller details.
They look alright, and the simplicity of them is nice, but after all the hype associated with changing kit providers, especially in a World Cup year, these are a bit underwhelming, especially when you look at some of the other thirteen kits Nike revealed.
Take the England kit, for example. When you look at the close-ups of the kit, there are fine details in the kit that make it more than just a plain shirt. They add a uniqueness that Canada’s seems to lack.
Or the Australian one, which has more obvious details, streaks of colour that catch your eye immediately.
The feedback online so far hasn’t be great, either:

At least there’s no temptation to buy one...— Maria K (@mariakerby) March 11, 2019
The World Cup isn’t won by the team with the best jersey, of course, and Canada will look to challenge for their first World Cup victory this summer in France. The tournament gets underway on June 7th, as the host country France takes on South Korea in Group A action.
Canada’s first game is on June 10th as they start their group action against Cameroon. The other teams in Group E are New Zealand and Netherlands.
