The new Portugal Euro 2016 Home Kit celebrates the return to Portugal's traditional light red and green design after their last shirt boasted a striking color gradient design on the front. It was officially revealed today and will be debuted in the friendly against Bulgaria on March 25.
"Wearing the shirt of the national team and playing with this symbol on my chest is always a great honor. We play for a whole country, for all the Portuguese living in Portugal or abroad, for our families, for our friends, and this is always special," says Ronaldo. "This new kit makes us feel stronger than ever, lighter and more agile. Me and my teammates can’t wait to start playing and winning matches with it!"
