The Three Lions kick off their Euro 2012 Qualifying campaign Friday, September 3rd at Wembley versus Bulgaria. When they hit the pitch, Gerrard, Rooney & the rest of Capello's men will be wearing a new shirt.
We're glad to introduce the
Official Umbro England 11/13 Home Soccer Jersey
Umbro, with the help of designer Phillip Saville, has created a masterpiece that honors the heritage and legacy of the Three Lions.
Like the previous England home and the current England away, this new jersey is inspired by English tailoring heritage, but with the latest innovative, technical design. Constructed from two distinct cotton-based fabrics, the shirt is thicker for protection on the front and back, and more flexible in the under-arm, increasing movement.
Perhaps the biggest change from the previous shirt is the neckline, with a square collar accompanied by a longer, more open neckline which increases the amount of movement in the garment across the chest. This is particularly important for players when they’re running and changing direction quickly on the pitch. Shoulder panels have multi-color St. George's Cross design. These multi-color crosses represent the cultural diversity of England. It's a nod to the modern England.
With the New Fabric Of England graphic on the shoulder and a blue Umbro logo on the chest, the new home shirt certainly adds color to the England palette.
