Almost all Adidas national teams have revealed their home and away jerseys for the 2018 World Cup.

Moroccan fans on social media were so frustrated that Adidas has not shown 'their' 2018 World Cup jerseys yet that they took Nike's Portugal kits and put the logo of Morocco's Royal Football Federation on Cristiano Ronaldo's jersey, suggesting that "this could be Morocco’s kit for this summer tournament."

Now Moroccan newspaper Al Maasae reported that the Moroccan footballing authorities and Adidas’s executive committee agreed to delay the official uncovering of Morocco’s World Cup kits to avoid forgeries. They are waiting for the appropriate moment to uncover the kits, Al Massae reported, citing Adidas’ concerns about "counterfeit duplication of the kits".
