Adidas reappears the classic white football shirts worn at American Cup in 1945 in the memory of 100 years competitions.

The whole back of football shirt adopts ultra-ventilate fabric aiming to release heat in sports event, following the trend of modern football.
The Colombia national football team represents Colombia in international football competitions and is overseen by the Colombian Football Federation. It is a member of the CONMEBOL and is currently ranked fifth in the FIFA World Rankings. The team are nicknamed Los Cafeteros due to the coffee production in their country.
Colombia had its strongest period during the 1990s. A 1993 match resulted in a 5–0 win over Argentina which began a special “mutual respect” rivalry between both nations. The goalkeeper René Higuita achieved fame from his eccentric scorpion kick clearance against England at Wembley Stadium in 1995.
