UMBRO LEAK

Revealed! The new England home kit! Possibly!

Will JT and Lampsie wear this thing in South Africa?

New England Kit 2009-2011

Official England kit manufacturer UMBRO were keen to reveal the new 2009-11 home strip at the Slovakia friendly on March 28. According to our hombres at Off the Post, however, these pictures show the strip that will soon be piled high in Soccer World shops all over the country.

As you can see, they’ve forsaken the traditional blue trim and opted for an aesthetic feel that may be described as “rubbish” or “crap”.

Hopefully, this is just a training top, and not the kit that our boys will be wearing while they fail to meet our ludicrously high expectations next summer.

Spoiler bonus quiz question:
Usually, the home strip of a national side is a colour featured on their national flag. Can you name four international sides whose shirt colour does not feature on their flag? Answers after the jump…

Spoiler bonus quiz answers: Italy (Blue), Netherlands (Orange), Japan (Blue) and Australia (Yellow/ Green)

    How about New Zealand?
    They play in an All White kit (Do you see what they’ve done there?), but the amount of White on their flag is negligible.
