Russia’s 2014 home jersey is inspired by Moscow’s landmark Kosmonauts Museum. The modern graphic that sweeps across the torso is a fitting tribute to the country’s space adventure.
Gold details across the sleeves, adidas logo and Russia’s team crest add to this jersey’s elegant and royal feel.
Like all of adidas’ 2014 federation jerseys, Russia’s 2014 home jersey has an iconic band across the shoulders to signify unity.
Printed on the back underneath the collar is “пoеxали!”, Russian for “Let’s go!”, which is what Yuri Gagarin, the first human in space, said during the Vostok launch in 1961.
Russia secured their ticket to the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ after a draw with Azerbaijan on October 16, which put them one point ahead of Portugal to win their group.
