What do you think ? Personally, I find it super ugly .. the design on the shirt is supposed to be a reflection of Algerian architecture, but for me it just looks boring (like most Puma jerseys). I guess we'll have to wait and see it worn by someone to decide, simple pictures like this can be deceiving.

Puma used local artists from each country to design the jerseys. Artist Zineb Sedira (www.zinebsedira.com) was used for Algeria. Here's what she said about her design:

“For this project I decided to use Islamic geometrical patterns often found in religious buildings and in houses in Algeria. The green is the colour of Algeria and Islam so it made sense to use it for the patterns. The patterns often used on ceramic tiles (on floors or walls) are converted onto fabric by using digital technology. The dynamism and movement of the players together with the static traditional motifs brings life to the design.”

The close up does the jersey justice without a doubt!
It's an improvement compared to the old coq sportif jerseys so I can't complain.

Honestly, the Coq Sportif ones were not so bad .. just the design and material looked a bit outdated, but they weren't really bad. For example, the last ones were not so bad .. the main problem was they didn't fit the players too well (waaay too big) :

As for Puma, they just don't seem inspired at all when it comes to their African teams .. they have one basic design that they apply to all the teams, just changing a few colors and maybe adding a lion or a tree on them.

From what I heard, the green one will just be a basic green, no designs on it .. just like our white Puma home jersey we had before but without the Fennec on the shoulder

I prefer to find http://www.wysjg.com/ the latest football shirt. His Algeria jersey looks very fresh. Very bright.
