Italy will play in a light blue shirt with brown shorts and socks in the 2009 confederation cup, according to the Italian newspaper Corrieredellosport.

The new Malaysia National team kit combines the pride of Malaysian Football while reflecting a new era of performance and innovation. Showcasing the football association of Malaysia’s tiger crest on the left the jersey incorporates local flavour with the keris featured on the inside bottom left corner, while the away jersey incorporates a striking blue that illuminates the players on the field.

Then JJB Sports, one of the major resellers of England shirts, announced that they would be reducing the size of their usual order, citing a poor design as the reason.
