England hosted Germany at Wembley on Monday (26 September) evening for the UEFA Nations League, which resulted in a three-three draw. But despite playing at home, the football team donned their away kit.
While many have speculated this was chosen because they beat Germany in the 1966 World Cup final wearing their red kit, in actual fact, the move to wear the latest design was quite simply because the Three Lions wanted to promote the new World Cup kit.
The opinion among fans was mixed. One supporter noted: “The worst bit about this match is England playing in their away kit for a home match. Criminal offence.” While another stated: “The England away kit is beautiful. The release photos didn’t do it any justice”.
The new red shirt features a navy collar and will be worn by Harry Kane and co during the World Cup in Qatar in November this year.
If you’re a fan of the new design and want to show your support for the Lions during the World Cup and beyond, here’s where you can buy the shirt.

England released its away kits for the 2022 World Cup in September, and Gareth Southgate’s team chose to debut it during a UEFA Nations League match against Germany. The new kit will be worn by the Lions during the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
It features Nike’s Dri-FIT technology, which wicks sweat away from your skin to make sure you stay dry and comfortable. Featuring a navy blue collar, which contrasts against the red colour, it’s a great way to show your support for the team.
Should you be looking to match with your little ones, you’ll be glad to know it comes in kids sizing (£59.95, Englandstore.com) too.
