Umbro can’t plug new England shirt leak

AFTER many years of producing terrible kits for England, it appears Umbro may finally have got it right (the fact that Nike, who do tend to make decent kits, now owns Umbro may have something to do with it).

This is a leaked photo of the new England home kit, as sported by skipper John Terry and goalie David James. There seems to be some debate about whether or not the photo is genuine, but Anorak can confirm it is for real (don’t ask us our sources – we’d only have to kill you).

The photo doesn’t show it, but the kit is all-white, from head to toe, and couldn’t be much simpler. The collar gives it a touch of class (not normally associated with John Terry).

Umbro will launch it officially this Saturday, when England’s players run out at Wembley for their friendly against Slovakia.

Update: The photo has been removed because Umbro – get this – say it breaches their copyright.

Update 2: It’s here!
