Croatia has one of the most recognizable home soccer jerseys with their red and white checker-board pattern and will continue to showcase this look in Brazil when they return to the World Cup for the 4th time in team history. 

Bayern Munich and Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic was on hand at the unveiling in the nation’s capital of Zagreb.

The home jersey is inspired by the jersey worn in the country’s first friendly as independent nation.  The United States traveled to Zagrab on October 17, 1990 with the home side coming away with a 2-1 win.  A great start for their new team and with a cool look.

The Croatia home kit is completed with white shorts and blue socks.
