Can't stand the colors but I love the imagery:

This coulda been the winner:

Another wonderful note. The face is captivating:

the back of the Costa Rican is wonderful

but they could have done a bit better with the front side, the head-person might be ok, but it's quite a bit too empty, maybe some more texture-objects-symbols work...

 

 

the Vanuatu looks great too :)

 

the Jersey color indeed it's... 'too much'
