As they look forward to the resumption of their vital 2014 qualification fixtures, the Republic Of Ireland have unveiled their new black away shirt. Inspired by the influx of new young players into the squad, the new Eire shirt celebrates 'a new dawn' for the national team and their aspirations. Currently third in a tight qualification group, the Republic face a double header against Sweden and Austria later this month that will have a significant bearing on their chances of making it to Brazil next summer.
Before that though, the new away shirt will go on sale on March 21st. With a subtle black and charcoal grey stripe on the main body, the shirt also features a smart black collar with white trim and detail stitching in the colours of the Irish flag. The shirt also features the Eire crest and Umbro logo embroidered in white alongside the printed 3 sponsor logo on the front.
Accompanied by black shorts and black socks with a green trim, the new away kit will certainly make a statement on the pitch. The shirt will be available online and at selected retailers from March 21st.
