As the coaching dilemma drags on, England fans can still get excited about the new style of their team jerseys for the EURO 2012 and International 2012/2013 season. With an all new color scheme inspired by the St. George’s flag, these jerseys will be worn by Wayne Rooney and Ashley Cole in their debut against Holland this Wednesday, 29 February.
The minimalist red and white design is patriotic and historic in tone. With an entirely red Three Lions crest, this jersey represents the St. Georges flag in its true form. The detail in the tailoring by Umbro is world-class. The red striping detail in the collar is supposedly taken from the jacket worn by England manager Sir Alf Ramsey in their 1966 World Cup triumphant championship victory.
With a polyester and cotton blend, this Umbro knit will maximize ventilation and comfort wicking sweat and moisture from the body. Under arm paneling targets ventilation where players need it most.
The same striping is featured in both the shorts and socks, and is prominent on the reverse when a player’s collar is turned up. Sticking to its roots, Umbro gave this jersey a classic feel with a button at the collar, and simply pleasing aesthetics. The shorts feature a vibrant Umbro logo opposite the same all-red Three Lions crest, with a sliver of red striping to round out the style.
The 100% polyester shorts are ergonomically shaped, with an elastic waistband. The cotton rich footbed within the socks provide added comfort, and the nylon leg adds flexibility and durability.
While the FA continues to stress over the acquisition of Harry Redknapp, you can relax in the style of the brand new England Home Jersey 12/13 from Umbro. Plus, check out the brand new Goalkeeper Jersey Kit and Anthem Jacket, with the same sleek style.
