England has unveiled new kits for the country’s football teams. The country’s football association took to its official Twitter handle to share pictures of the new home and away kits. Some superstars of the men’s football team were used as models for the new kits.

The players in display included the captain of the team and Tottenham Hotspur’s talisman Harry Kane, Chelsea’s forward Tammy Abraham, Manchester City’s forward Raheem Sterling, and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.

Others are Borussia Dortmund‘s winger Jadon Sancho, Liverpool’s midfielder Trent Alexander-Arnold, and a host of others. The new kits would be used to execute their forthcoming European Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark on Saturday, September 5, and on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

Nike, the sportswear manufacturing company that designed the kits, combined white and blue with a little touch of red to design the new kits. The home kits are white shirts, blue shorts, and white socks. While the away kit is all blue which is contrary to the all-red away kit the country used in 2019-2020.

“There is a feel-good factor surrounding the England team and we wanted to capture all that vibrancy and try some new things,” Scott Munson, Nike’s VP of football apparel said.

“Their collection balances a classic home identity with an adventurous, eye-catching away kit.”
