Nike's World Cup Kits?

Floating around the 'net is this pic. Word is that it represents Nike's lineup of World Cup uniforms. It is not known if this a copy of an offical Nike pic or a bootleg. But from what I have heard, the lineup looks to be correct and confirms what I posted a few months ago.

I think that from left to right to would be: Turkey, Croatia, Morocco, Mexico, USA, Portugal, Brasil, Holland, Korea... Nike looks to have worked hard to give each country their own identity instead of the much debated "cookie cutter" look of late.

Also take a close look at the US kit. Note the left sock appears to continue the verticle stripe. This was one of the design ideas that I was told was "being discussed". Also the blue shorts instead of white, and the 'away' top will be the Mexico jersey template, but just in a blue with the horizontal stripe being red.
