Matildas thrilled with 'out there, bold' new World Cup kits - Sam Kerr
For the first time, the Matildas will wear a uniquely designed kit at this year's World Cup.
Though the watercolour design evokes memories of the most infamous Socceroos kit in history -- the 1990s spew shirt -- there's no player revolt over the new design.
Sam Kerr has lauded the new shirt, saying it represents the Matildas' spirit as an "out there and bold" team.
"The kit is unreal, it's such a different take on what we've seen in the past and we couldn't have hoped for a better looking home jersey," she said.
"To have a kit designed just for the Matildas to play in, it's a dream come true, and we are honoured to be pulling on the green and gold."
The home shirt is predominantly gold, with splashes of green and white that bare comparison with Ken Done's famous paintings.
Nike's Cassie Looker said the design team wanted to create a "marriage between urban street culture and the amazing countryside in Australia."
The strip is likely to be polarising given the move away from the simple formula of gold shirt, green shorts and white socks so beloved by traditionalists.
The new home strip also features green shorts and socks that replicates the shirt's pattern, while the predominantly green away kit remains the same design as the team has played in since last year's launch prior to the men's World Cup.
The Matildas will first wear their new shirts against the world's No.1 team, the United States, in a friendly in April before the June tournament.
