ENGLAND kits

ENGLAND’S home and away kits for the World Cup in Qatar have been leaked online.

The alleged Nike efforts look set to be worn when Gareth Southgate takes his side to the Middle East in November.

Both shirts evoke memories of Three Lions kits of yesteryear.

Manufacturers Nike appear to have decided to give the strips a retro, 1990s feel.

The home shirt, as revealed by Footy Headlines, features a navy blue to light blue gradient design on the sleeves.

Its trim will likely spark fans’ memories of England kits during the second half of the 1990s.

The away shirt, meanwhile, features a collar reminiscent of that used by Umbro in England’s 1992 away shirt.

It is an otherwise minimalistic red shirt featuring the Nike swoosh and of course the Three Lions.

The designs have drawn mixed responses, with fans generally preferring the away strip to the home one.

A social media user wrote: “Should just play in the away shirt as that home shirt is bloody awful.”

Another added: “The white one is shocking. Looks like a training top.”

A third jibed: “Collar on home is dire, away is a straight rip off from 90. Nike are so poor its untrue.”

But another fan gushed: “The away one looks class.”

A further Twitter user commented: “That home shirt is absolutely horrendous.”

While one went against the grain, adding: “Just me that likes the white shirt.”

The Three Lions take on Italy and Germany later this month in Nations League clashes in their final matches before the World Cup kicks off in Qatar.

England will begin their campaign against Iran on November 21, with further group matches against the USA on November 25 and a clash with Wales four days later.
