England’s new World Cup kit – what do you think?

England dropped their new kit this week

England have released their home and away kits for the 2022 World Cup this week, and they could be their most stylish in years.

English football may never have looked better. The Lions brought home the European Championship this summer and a lot will be expected of Gareth Southgate’s side at the World Cup in Qatar this year.

England narrowly missed out on the European Championship title last year after a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out by Italy in the final. They also reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.

According to A statementexternal link On the England Football site, the home kit is inspired by the 1992 and 1996 European Championship designs. It uses the traditional color template, but adds a distorted Three Lions graphic on the shoulders, with angles and lines designed to look like claw marks.

Meanwhile, the outer strip offers a new take on a classic template. England says the kit honors “England’s historic past” while “nodding to the future through vibrant, youthful pieces of colour”.

Does it beat some of the kits from the last 20 years? Check out…
