Spain taking on Italy .

Spain kit trolled on Twitter

Published 5 Comments

Italy and Spain may well have played out a 1-1 draw in a friendly clash this evening, but the game itself wasn't exactly what people were talking - or tweeting - about throughout the 90 minutes. 

Adidas' away kit for the Spanish national team really does take some getting used to. It's safe to say that it took one or two viewers by surprise this evening. 

David de Gea, starring in goal, was certainly the odd one out, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

The kit is, well, rather odd; it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly has *something* about it....

With a base colour of white - come on, surely they could have gone a little crazier than that - there are also shades of yellow, orange and red triangles on the shirt.

Well, here are a couple of photos of the kit from the clash with the Italians.

So, what happened in the match?

The game may well be a side story - the kit saga has well and truly taken over - but we better explain what went on as two of Europe's greatest teams came together. Well, first thing's first, both sides will probably be fairly content with their outing. 

In a fairly quiet first half, Manchester United goalkeeper De Gea made a couple of solid stops to keep the scores level, but there wasn't too much to get excited about.

The second half was far more entertaining, however; Italy took the lead after substitute Lorenzo Insigne slotted home past De Gea. 

Spain produced the required response as they quickly hit back thanks to a close range goal from Aduriz Zubeldia. Vicente del Bosque's side ended the game strongly but failed to secure the victory. 

There's no doubt about it, Spain, who are the current holders of the European Championships, will be determined to once again prove their credentials at a major tournament. 

They underperformed at the World Cup, but there's no reason why they won't be able to come to prominence in France. 

Italy, on the other hand, may not have as many big names as they once had, but they shouldn't be underestimated heading into the tournament.
