Knees weak, legs are heavy, Sam Kerr’s wearing mum’s spaghetti

-

Look. If you had one shot. Or one opportunity. To buy the Matildas’ first ever bespoke kit. In one moment. Would you capture it. Or just let it slip?

It’s real and it’s glorious, the Matildas’ kit for the 2019 World Cup is a throwback to yesteryear and is already flying off the shelves.

While the corporate lingo tells us that the kit is inspired by Melbourne’s famous Hosier Lane and the Golden Wattle, we all know it’s a throwback to the Socceroos’ wonderfully horrific kit in the early 90s: ingloriously known as the spaghetti vomit kit.

While the launch has created some debate, it’s taken less than 24 hours for many haters to turn around completely.

Anyway, you can click here to purchase the jersey but be quick – they are selling out fast.
