New threads for The Three Lions | Nike channel classic English style in new away shirt


Written by Jacob Harder

As the England national team returns to the pitch during this international break, the players will debut the new away shirt from Nike. We've got the info, we've got the pictures. Sit back and enjoy!

The saying goes that the English invented the game of football, but it was the Brazilians who perfected it and although that may sting in the ears of fans of The Three Lions, there is still plenty of reason to be proud of being English, even if footballing prowess in major tournaments isn't one of them. First off, the English invented classic menswear and they sure did perfect it as well. Look no further than Savile Row in London to find the finest tailored suits in the world, or you can just take a look at the new England away shirt for 2017. Stylish, timeless, exquisite.

There's always been an understated element to English fashion and style and I can't help but feel that this new away shirt captures just that. In two distinct shades of dark blue, with the sleeves donning the darker of the two and the body in a slightly lighter colour, the design is as clean as the teams slate ahead of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. After a disappointing showing at the EURO's, Gareth Southgate and his selection of players are ready to start their quest for international glory.

With the likes of Rashford, Kane, Sterling, Stones and all the other young stars coming through, the future is looking bright for the English. On paper, they have the squad to be considered a contender for 2018 World Cup, but it still remains to be seen if they can live up to the expectations. Nike have surely equipped them well for the tasks ahead with the new away shirt, but the rest is up to not only the players, but the fans! Regardless, we're sure we'll be seeing a load of football fans wearing this shirt in the near future!
