England's new World Cup kit accidentally leaked by Nike without FA knowing… but fans aren't keen on 'horrible' design | The Sun

ENGLAND fans have been left fuming after Nike leaked England's new kit for the World Cup, without the FA's knowledge.

Ahead of Gareth Southagte's England squad announcement, Nike unveiled the new England home and away kits online, with the FA in the dark as to this happening up until the moment they went online.


The new home kit pays homage to the 1996 jersey, combining The Three Lions traditional white with a sky blue and navy shoulder pattern.

These colours are also repeated on the shorts and socks of the full kit, though fans were far from pleased with them.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "If that’s England’s new home kit… Nike football need 2 hold there heads in shame!! It’s woeful."

A second user added: "New England home kit looking like a sports direct special."

Another user commented: "Shocking, never been a fan of England using blue – our kit should only be using red & white (our flag)."

The announcement post revealed 13 new kits from the various nations Nike manufacture kits for, including World Cup holders France, Netherlands, and Portugal.

However, these kits were also met with dismay, with one user lambstaing the designs and commenting: "I think every national team deserves an apology."

Despite the fierce criticism the other kits – particularly England's home kit – received, the all red away kit has earned praise.

One user said: "How can you create an awful home shirt and yet one of the most beautiful away ones at the same time?

"This red 1990s inspired kit is a belter of a shirt for England in the next World Cup in Qatar."

While another, clearly with their hopes up, added: "When Kane lifts the trophy it better be in the red kit not that other monstrosity."

Earlier today, Southgate announced his final squad before the World Cup finals in November.
