The evolution of the Indian football team jersey over the years
Nike experimented with horizontal stripes for the first time in 2013. That, however, coincided with one poor performance after another for the Blue Tigers on the pitch under the management of Wim Koevermans. It was an all-blue kit with horizontal dark blue stripes the highlight. India, though, lost the final of the 2013 SAFF Championship against Afghanistan wearing this kit.
This blue kit with orange detailing witnessed some of India's biggest successes on the pitch as Constantine got reappointed in 2015. It also coincided with the Blue Tigers’ SAFF Championship win in 2016 but also saw them bow out of contention for qualifying for the 2018 World Cup after finishing at the bottom of their qualification group that comprised Asian big hitters like Iran and Oman apart from Guam and Turkmenistan.
