Adidas has officially unveiled Egypt’s home kit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The design was leaked online roughly a week ago, and turned out to be real.

The leak – along with today’s official release – were met with widespread chagrin among Egypt fans hoping for a nicer look.

There is a popular perception that Adidas puts more thought and effort into more high-profile teams than it does with every other squad it outfits.

Adidas says it is going with a retro look for the coming World Cup, but aside from select teams, most of the new designs seem to belong to timelessly generic templates.

Suffice it to say, many fans miss the attention to detail offered by Puma, Egypt’s former kit provider.
