Costa Rica kits World Cup 1990

Costa Rica played with three different kits, two games with striped kit, and one game with the reds. Something that intrigues me are the socks, why has only a couple of socks with lotto logo? and why the lotto logo is not the same on all shirts?. Lotto for me in these years did not have a strong branding yet.

Brazil kits World Cup 1990

Brazil played all his matches with the yellow shirt, socks were the only ones in change, was the last time in a World Cup that the Brazilians showed his badge with the Jules Rimet cup.

Soviet Union kits World Cup 1990

Last time we saw the Soviet team in a World Cup, sponsored by adidas them chose the constructivist shirt design for the socialist block, with the classical adidas shorts. I have to say the i miss the large CCCP letters in the chest.

Argentina kits World Cup 1990

One must recognize that Argentina has one of the most beautiful combinations for kits of the entire planet, also does not resemble any other country. For the World Cup 1990 adidas design a unique V neck for Argentina and a black short with no adidas stripes. A curious fact that I would like to know, is why Argentina played with a black short with adidas stripes in the first game vs Cameroon, and the rest of the competition used black short witout adidas stripes (Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Italy).

Romania kits World Cup 1990

Since WC 70 Romania was not presented in a final stage, and it would seem that not even had a uniform prepared, a shirt without federation or contry logo and socks that look like they are from another team was the highlights of this kit. still the yellow color is faded. Too bad adidas!.
A comment by Lucas explain that federation logo was associated with the regime of dictator Ceaucescu overthrown by 1989 revolution and for this Romanian Football federation choose not to put badge in his kit. We can see the controversial logo in the info bar.

Cameroon kits World Cup 1990

This kit is well remembered, wore it by a team that surprised and liked people. From a design perspective, we see the antiquated pattern shiny fabric from the 80's, but very African, with that huge lion like badge.

United States kits World Cup 1990

Another alternative design presented adidas for U.S. team. As we see since WC90 adidas already had many design variations, this did not happen in previous World Cups. Also was the last time of this federation logo in a World Cup. As interesting detail, adidas design unique numbers for USA, for the rest of the teams assign generic 1990 design.

Austria kits World Cup 1990

Austria kits with showy design, those large stripes liked a lot of people, for many the nicest of WC90 for me.

Czechoslovakia kits World Cup 1990

Interesting design that resembles Russian Constructivism, maybe that's why we see this adidas design in some of the socialist nations bloc teams at the time. A mistake in my opinion is the manufacturer's logo on black above design pattern, it completely loses visibility.
