England 2018 Shirts

England have Nike shirts for the 2018 World Cup finals, a white home worn with blue shorts and white socks and a red away kit of red shirt, white shorts and red socks, they play in Group G



England play in white shirts with the Three Lions badge, which proved the catalyst to the most successful England anthem, Three Lions on a Shirt, originally written for Euro 96. The England shirt was pulled on by Goalkeeper Peter Shilton more times than any other player, he gained his 125th and last cap in the 1990 World Cup. In 2013 it was the FA's 100th year in existence and England switched their kit supplier from Umbro to Nike where the shirts featured a special 100th anniversary crest on the home and away shirts.

England played in the first ever international football match in 1872, against Scotland, the game was played at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, the result was a 0-0 draw. England are by far the most successful of the Home Nations, as well as being former World Champions, they won the British Home Championship outright 34 times, as many as the other three nations managed combined.

England's greatest moment was in winning the World Cup in 1966 captained by Bobby More, the scorers in the 4-2 win were Geoff Hurst with a hat-trick and one from Martin Peters. England play their home games in the 90,000 Wembley stadium, which has a state of the art arch and a closing roof. The ground may never hold the same character as the old Wembley and it's twin towers, time and England results will tell. Famous names to wear the shirt include Sir Bobby Charlton England's top goal scorer with 49 and Gary Lineker with 48 goals, along with Paul Gascoigne, Kevin Keegan, Bryan Robson, Sir Stanley Matthews and all the other greats of English football.

England are one of the best international teams in Europe and the world as they boast several household names including Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard. Nicknamed the 'Three Lions', England have their shirts manufactured by Nike who overtook Umbro in 2013 and they feature a white base with navy blue trim which reflects the FA logo and the away shirts are royal red with gold trim. The FA celebrated is 150th year in existence by creating a commemorative gold crest with the text “1863 150 Years 2013” at the bottom.

World Cup Kits

The England home kit has comprised of a white colour and dark shorts ever since the side first appeared at a World Cup in 1950. For the 2010 FIFA World Cup England broke the long tradition to utilise an all white design, they'll again wear this combination at the 2014 tournament, thanks in part to FIFA's new kit regulations.

England's kits for the 2014 World Cup were inspired by English football history and culture revealing designs which are classic and simple. The new home shirt features a plain white base with engineered pinstripes in the fabric along with white satin tape on the shoulders which give the shirt a distinctive shine. The new away kit for England celebrates the team's history revealing the the nation's most iconic symbols in a modern design. The new away shirt features a pinstripe tonal design which boasts an faint St. George's cross in the middle.

England slightly changed their shirt in 1982 where they added unique blue and red panels to either side of the shirt. In 1990 Umbro introduced a rhombus design watermark while in 2002 a red striped came down the left of the shirt offering a memorable kit.

For the English FA's 150th anniversary in 2013 England switched kit suppliers from Umbro to Nike and the new home shirt featured a classical gold crest with one gold star above to honour the nations historic World Cup win in 1966.

England's most famous shirt was the one used at the 1966 FIFA World Cup. It was all red, long-sleeve and a rounded collar with white shorts. World Cup hero and England captain Sir Bobby Moore was the star of the tournament and other key players included Geoff Hurst, Jimmy Greaves, Sir Bobby Charlton and Gordon Banks.

England have used several kit suppliers in their history with St. Blaize and Hope Brothers first in 1949, Bukta in the early 60's, Admiral in the late 70's and early 80's, Umbro from 1954 to 2013 and Nike took over from Umbro in 2013.

Other notable England shirts included the shirt used at the 1990 FIFA World Cup where is was produced by Umbro and featured navy blue trim on the sleeve hems, crests and logos and collar. The side famously reached the semi-finals only to suffer a heart breaking penalty shoot-out defeat to West Germany. The shirt was donned by England great Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne.

In terms of away shirts England have almost always used red or dark blue colours. A notable away shirt for the 1996 European Championship included a unique dark grey and light grey colour combination.

Very little has changed in the past century of England kits with their white coloured home shirt being one of the most identifiable shirts in football history.
