After the failure to do anything of note in the fabulous but hubristic Russia 2009 shirt someone somewhere sat down and decided what was needed for the new kit was more gold trim and a deeper almost sinister imperial purple. This shirt is so decadent looking it looks like it could do with some gems or something. It's quite a piece of work and I think it's fantastic. The shirt is made of top quality materials and was used in anger as the Russians qualified for the 2012 Euros. This is as close to football shirt as art as I've seen.
