‘Absolutely horrible’: England’s World Cup kits leave fans divided

England released their official World Cup uniforms and left fans divided, to say the least, whether they like it or not.

Gareth Southgate’s team travels to Qatar in November to try to win the trophy the team has not held since 1966.

The main part of the home shirt is similar to previous England shirts, the plain white with the Three Lions logo. But the shoulders are covered in a sky blue and navy pattern, with the end of the sleeves also having a blue finish.

The controversial colors are also on the shorts and socks of the complete kit. The away shirt, which seems most popular among fans, is red with a blue collar and the Three Lions badge is also blue.

In revealing the kit, both for home and away shirts, they said on social media: “We wear the shirt with pride. A closer look at the #ThreeLions‘ new @nikefootball home and away kits!”

Fans reacted in responses to the tweet and there were divided opinions.

One fan said: “Why is Nike fighting so hard to come out with a decent shirt? The last two were shocking. The away kit is for me.”

A different fan said: “The home kit is absolutely terrible. The Away kit looks like a retro knockoff.”

Another said: “I loved this alternate jersey as long as we play in white or blue shorts and not all red. The less said about the home jersey, the better.”

A quarter wrote: “Did anyone actually get paid to create this? Terrible.”

But another took a different stance, saying: “People complain when they choose simple minimalist designs. And then moan when they get all jazzy. You cannot win.”

The kit had initially leaked last week, and again, the reaction at the time was largely negative.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “If this is England’s new kit…Nike needs to keep its head in shame!! It’s regrettable.”

A second added: “The New England uniform looks like a straight sports special.”

The away kit fared better, as Quentin Gesp wrote: “How can you create a horrible home shirt and one of the prettiest at the same time? This 1990s-inspired red kit is an England shirt for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.”

England will start their campaign against Iran on November 21, where they will wear the home shirt.
