We’re only a couple of days away from Euro 2020 finally kicking off. Fans are slowly but surely getting hyped and stars such as Serge Gnabry, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Marcus Rashford are readying to battle it out to be crowned Europe’s best. Football kits are starting to make their way into peoples’ everyday rotation, and you can feel the energy in the air.

But the award for best national team jersey of the summer doesn’t go to one of the 24 teams taking part. In fact, it goes to a team that wasn’t even eligible to compete in the UEFA-sanctioned tournament to begin with. Iraq, currently ranked 68 in the world, has the best jersey we’ve seen since, well, that Japan shirt from a few weeks ago.

Last week, Umbro unveiled the 2021/22 home and away jerseys for the country that plays in the AFC confederation. It would be an understatement to say we’re fans. Both jerseys are inspired by ancient Mesopotamian symbols, featuring a graphic pattern of the Babylon palm across the front, the Umbro diamond logo across both sleeves, and a classic V-neck collar.

The white away jersey — our favorite by far — sees the Iraq crest and the Umbro logo across the center of the chest; it's just the right amount of old-school — kinda reminiscent of the British sports brand's special Palace x England kit from a while back — and the exact type of jersey that would be perfect for wearing casually. The green home jersey, meanwhile, has a more traditional crest and logo placement on either side of the chest.

Both jerseys will be available starting in mid-July at select Umbro stores worldwide.
