The 2016 European champions have unveiled their new home and away kits for the upcoming tournament in Qatar.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on hand to help Portugal launch their new kit for the 2022 World Cup.

The Navigators have gone for a rather bold Nike design. Their home jersey features a diagonal half-and-half design, using the country’s traditional pepper red and gorge green colors.

“Portugal’s 2022 kits signal a new era on the horizon for futebol português,” read a statement from Nike.

“On the home kit, Pepper Red and Gorge Green, with Gold Dart tipping, nods to the Portuguese flag while a diagonal line mimics the flag wrapped around the body. National pride is shown through the crest of the Federação Portuguesa de Futebol (FPF) and the esfera armilar, used as a patch on the back collar.”

As for the away edition of the Portugal World Cup kit, Nike added: “The away kit uses Sail White, an off-white tone, to ensure the Portuguese club stands out in a sea of bright white kits.”

Ronaldo and Portugal are in Group H for the 2022 World Cup alongside Ghana, Uruguay, and South Korea.

They’ll begin the tournament against Ghana on November 24 at the Stadium 974 in Doha.
