Nike Soccer Unveils 2017/18 Third Kits for FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Chelsea, Tottenham

posted by Oscar September 12, 2017

The UEFA Champions League is back!! While a lot of us may take advantage of these dates to start queuing up the iconic theme song (UPDATE), Nike instead has opted for unleashing some new kits for some of the teams in the competition they suit up.

Spain’s FC Barcelona, Italy’s Inter Milan and AS Roma, and Chelsea and Tottenham from the UK, all have new kits announced this week. All the teams listed will be sporting camo designs on their latest jerseys.

Some of the colors have some interesting names and titles. Chelsea’s dark grey shirt has “modern electric blue” features and Spurs will be wearing a dark purple kit “rich yellow” highlights. The cool names for the new colors go to Italian squads, with Inter rocking a thunder blue third kit and AS Roma’s new jersey will be turning heads thanks to their dark velvet brown tone. The big stand-out? That goes to Barça, which is biting Roma’s signature maroon & orange colors for some odd and inexplicable reason… I mean, it looks cool, but still.

Check out images of the new kits below. Continue Reading

Lionel Messi is, without a doubt, the greatest goalscorer of his generation. Proof? With 86 goals in all of 2012, Messi breaks Gerd Muller’s 40-year old record of 85 goals in a calendar year set back in 1972 while playing for Bayern München and Germany.

With three games left for him in 2012, Messi has a chance at expanding that tally and further cementing his place in soccer history.

See all 86 goals above!
