Which one of Africa's representative has the best 2014 World Cup kit?

Host nation Brazil- WC KIT
Africa's 5 representatives have all released their World Cup Home and Away kit for the 2014 edition of the tournament which is slated to hold in Brazil in less than days days to go and they are not looking bad at all.
Although they all look good, I would have to give it to Ghana, their 2014 World Cup kit is exceptionally beautiful and authentic, it features some African prints and designs but its simple enough to be described as classy.



World Cup 2014 Kits-Africa (In alphabetical order)
-Algeria representing north Africa as they make their 4th World Cup appearance this year they will be playing against Belgium, Russia and South Korea in Group H in Brazil. Algeria are currently battling to make an impact in Africa after they were knocked out in the 2013 Nations Cup, but with the World Cup comes the hope of high performances and only time will tell now. 
The Algerian Greens will be heading to the World Cup with their Puma made jerseys, their Home kit features flash green as second color and a simple round collar while the sleeve cuffs are light green. The jersey also has a light green Puma logo at the front of the kit. Their 2014 WC Away kit bears very similar features as their home jersey only this one is mainly light green with white applications.


-Cameroon will be making their 7th World Cup appearance this year in Group A making them the the only African side with the most appearances at the World Cup. Several friction in the team has contributed to the Lions poor performance in the past four years, but this year, with Eto'o back, we can only hope for the best. 
Cameroon premiered their 2014 World Cup kit which was made by PUMA in their warm-up match against Portugal on March 5th. Their new WC Home kit features cave painting on front of the jersey and the Puma logo is placed in the center of the shirt, the sleeve cuffs also features the cave painting design. Their WC Away kit features similar designs as the home jersey only this one has yellow as the background color and red applications. The patterns are not made visible on this one, and it also has some green in it.


-Ghana made it all the way to the quarterfinals in the last World Cup appearance before they were denied a semi-final spot, but they are back and determined. With a host some of the best mid-fielders including Michael Essien and Kevin Boateng who recently returned to the team, the Black Stars may actually become more successful in their 3rd WC appearance. 
They will be representing their country in Brazil 2014 in their Group G with a kit made by Puma who remain their shirt producers since 2005. Their 2014 WC Home kit is quite unique and beautiful, it infuses a lot of the Ghanaian culture. The jersey has a white background and features the Kente cloth design around the collar, the design which is characterized by multicolored patterns of bright colors, and geometric shapes is also seen on the sleeve cuffs of the jersey. Unlike their Home kit, the 2014 WC Away jersey comes in bright red with large front graphics with 'Black Stars' inscriptions. It also features a simple round collar with a yellow Puma logo and the sleeve cuffs designed with bright star patterns.


-Ivory Coast, Africa's favorite are heading to their third World Cup this year in Group C and while this may be the last chance for some of the team's top players, they have not been quite successful in last two attempts; failing to get past the first round each time. The Elephants are currently the number 1 team in the whole of Africa. Like Cameroon, the Elephant wore their brand new World Cup kit which was also made by Puma during their friendly against Belgium in March. 
Their 2014 WC Home kit is made more simple with a round collar with the main color orange. The shirt features cave paintings on the sleeves including the graphics of an elephant. Their WC Away kit is similar to the home design but differs in color. The Away jersey is green and features the same template as the home kit.


-Nigeria will be heading to their 5th World Cup this summer after a very successful year in 2013 . The Super Eagles made their first World Cup appearance in 1994 and although they bowed out of the competition in second round, their World Cup kit was quite phenomenal, the kit which was complete with patterned shoulder panel was eventually tagged the best World Cup kit in USA '94. For this summer's World Cup, the Super Eagles will play against Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Iran in their Group F. 
The new Super Eagles 2014 World Cup Away kit is based on Adidas Regista 14 template and is mainly white with dark and light green accents. Their 2014 World Cup Home jersey is based on Adidas Condivo 14 kit template, the front of the jersey features small darker green pinstripes while the sleeves are divided in one light green and one dark green part. The V-collar features both green colors that is found in the sleeve cuffs.
