With the first international break of a World Cup year on the horizon, leaked images of new national team kits are coming thick and fast.

England were one of the first to show off their new designs towards the back end of last week, swiftly followed by a much-talked-about away kit for Nigeria.

Now, leaked images unearthed by the always-reliable Footy Headlines appear to offer us a glimpse of Spain’s next away kit.

Made by adidas, the shirt is predominantly ‘halo blue’ – such a light shade of the colour it actually appears grey. The bright red colour associated with Spanish home shirts has been used around its sleeves and collar and is also used for the badge, adidas logo and the German sportswear giant’s famous red stripes on the shoulders.

Footy Headlines point out that the shirt is completed by a ‘1980s-inspired’ graphics print.

The kit is expected to be finished off with white shorts and grey socks.

Not bad at all, if you’re asking us. Although we can’t help but feel we’ve seen it (or something very similar) somewhere else before…

It’s expected to be officially launched in time for next month’s international break, where Spain play friendlies against reigning world champions, Germany, and Argentina.
