As they look forward to the second leg of their traditional derby against Chile on April 11, we thought you might want to see the new Peru 2012 away shirt, which will be worn by the national side as they aim to qualify for the 2014 World Cup. Qualification has already kicked off in South America, but Peru are currently battling for Copa del Pacifico bragging rights, playing neighbours Chile over two legs. Having lost the first leg last week 3-1, Peru will be looking to do their smart new away kit justice when they play again next month.

Luckily, thanks to their new away shirt, Peru will have 25 million fans cheering them on wherever they play. On the front of their smart new away shirt, the collar creates a subtle version of the Peruvian red and white striped flag, while a map of the country is printed onto the back of the neck to further connect the football team with the nation.

Designer Sumy Kujon collaborated with Umbro to create the shirt, which sits nicely with the rest of the Manchester based firms other South American designs. 

Bombard @Umbro with tweets and you might just be able to pick one up on their website soon.
