Eden Hazard and Vincent Kompany Model Belgium’s New Adidas Kit For Euro 2016

Eden Hazard and Vincent Kompany Model Belgium’s New Adidas Kit For Euro 2016

Belgium are among the first teams to showcase their new home kit ahead of Euro 2016.

Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Nacer Chadli and Axel Witsel were chosen to model the new red, black and yellow adidas kit which they will don in France next summer.

And it could be the strip they wear as they win their first international tournament – with Marc Wilmots’ team one of the favourites going into the competition.

Belgium rose to become the world’s number one team in the latest FIFA rankings after winning their last four games on the bounce to finish top of their qualifying group last month.

They’ll expect to improve on their showing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where they were knocked out at the hands of Argentina in the quarter-finals.

The talkingbaws verdict on the new strip:

“There was something plain about the previous Belgian home strip so we’re glad to see the country combine with adidas to produce this colourful kit.

“It’s back to what we remember Belgium for and we’re almost certain that the nation will back the new strip by travelling in their thousands to France next year wearing it.

“What a sight that will be.”

Belgium will watch on as eight teams play for the remaining four spots at Euro 2016 in the play-offs this week.

Norway play Hungary on Thursday before facing off in their return leg on Sunday, while Bosnia take on Ireland a day later before the second leg a week today.

Ukraine play Slovenia while Sweden face Denmark on Saturday before the playoffs finish with both return legs next Tuesday.
