FootballShirtCulture has leaked pics of the red away shirt that England will wear in South Africa next summer. And here they are:
PICS REMOVED AT UMBRO’S REQUEST
Not difficult to see where the inspiration for this design came from:
Of course, these leaked pics could be fake – though if they are, it’s a convincing job.
Fake or real, what do you think of this ‘new’ away kit – unimaginative or a retro classic?
As I’ve said before, I think retro kits are all very well, but it’s much more interesting when designers come up with something new and different. So whilst the red away shirt with simple crew-neck is a respectful nod to 1966, I’d rather not hear any more about 1966 until the 2010 World Cup is over.
