The evolution of the Indian football team jersey over the years
The 2009-10 Nike kit was a throwback to the 2006-07 kit but the blue colour got a bit darker this time out. The Blue Tigers won the Nehru Cup in 2009 wearing their new kit, thereby winning the trophy for the second consecutive time. A couple of the current Indian team stars like Sunil Chhetri and Subrata Pal came of age during this time, sporting this kit.
2010 brought about another new shirt from Nike and this was to be worn for India's first Asian Cup appearance in 27 years in 2011. This kit had a different template from all the previous Nike kits and had a template similar to big national teams like Brazil and the Netherlands. This kit was plain blue with an orange strip at the end of the sleeves. The Blue Tigers didn't fare too well in the Asian Cup sporting this kit, losing all their group stage matches before being knocked out.
