As England have officially booked their place at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, thoughts are turning to many of the smaller details involved and if you felt that Umbro pulled out the stops for the new England home kit, wait until you see what they have in store for the change strip.
The sartorial style and elegance of Italian manager Fabio Capello has once again been the influencing factor in the kit that John Terry, Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand will wear at next summer’s big occasion but insiders suggest that no one will have seen the likes of this kit before.
Lions may be the more natural animal found in South Africa but a tuxedo style away kit is sure to leave the English stars looking like penguins when they take to the field at the World Cup. The kit is still in the final processes but Umbro staff, been though they have been sworn to secrecy, have whispered that that waist-coat style look will provide increased ventilation but also add another layer, helping to keep players warm.
Many people are overlooking the fact that the World Cup will be played in South Africa’s winter with temperatures set to drop quite low but the technicians at Umbro will ensure that all English players will be warm enough for the battle that lies ahead.
