Kit manufacturers PUMA have unveiled Italy's new home and away kits for the 2014 Brazil World Cup. The kit will be used for the first time when Italy take on Spain on March 5th and then during the 2014 World Cup games.

Gianluigi Buffon, Mario Balotelli, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Pirlo were presented with the shirts in Milan before the shirts were placed into a tour bus that will showcase the 23 home shirts around various Italian city's such as Milan, Rome and Napoli before they'll be worn by the players in Brazil later this year.

Cesare Prandelli's men take on England in their first match of the 2014 World Cup as they look to advance from Group D into the knock-out stages.

PUMA had this to say about the new kits:

“One shirt, one nation, one dream. Every tournament needs a new shirt. Azzurri fans, yours has arrived. This authentic Italia compression shirt features PUMA ACTV tape which aligns with muscles used during football plays, goals, and celebrations.“
