The German Football Association has unveiled the new away strip to be used in the Euro 2012 tournament. Between 1954 and 1998, Germany had always played in green away shirts, but lately they have changed to black, red, or a combination of both black and red.
The new away shirt unveiled by the Football Association goes ‘Back to Green’, using this motto to announce the shirt. The shirt is modelled by captain Philipp Lahm and manufactured by adidas. The shirt has two slightly different shades of green on the body fabric, being striped horizontally.
The collar is a white round-neck, and the sleeve hems are also white. There are the three adidas trademark stripes in white extending from the collar to the shoulders to the sleeves, and three sewn green stars above the crest commemorating the country’s World Cup triumphs. White shorts with green adidas stripes on the sides complement this shirt.
