I used a crest shape I call the "Italia", because the soccer team uses the same shape. I wrapped a banner around it similar to the Phoenix logo. With the flag running down it, and then the letters are in brown. They wore brown pants at the 2009 Confederations Cup, and I really liked it. I brought it back because of this.
The team wore an azurri blue top with brown pants, and I brought it back. I used gold numbers to stand out and not clash with anything, and the gold looked really good with the brown.I did a concept like this for the world cup with the flag going across the chest, just like the Germans did for Euro 08.
