England's World Cup Home Shirt Could Be The Worst At This Year's Tournament

England's World Cup Home Shirt Could Be The Worst At This Year's Tournament

A controversial effort from Nike.

An image of England's World Cup 2022 home shirt has leaked online and many think it is a step back from the current kit.

Gareth Southgate's side will be hoping to win this winter's tournament in Qatar after coming up short in the Euro 2020 final last July.

The Three Lions have a genuine opportunity to win their first major international honour since 1966 and they are among the favourites.

Nike have knocked it out of the park when it comes to recent England kit designs and what they wear right now is a work of art. The sportswear giant have decided to switch it up for their next offering and you can check out an image from the ever-reliable Footy Headlines below.

The three colours on show are described as 'White, Blue Fury and Blue Void' in a throwback to the 1990s.

It is a gradient gradient from dark blue to light blue on the shoulders and the cuffs also use both shades of blue.

While it certainly evokes memories of Euro 96 with the light blue, many are not fond of the shoulder design.

Supporters have had their say on social media and the kit is causing controversy.

One person said: "This shirt is horrendous."

Another commented: "How have Nike got it so horribly wrong?"

A third put: "Imagine England winning their first World Cup in 56 years and they lift it wearing this awful shirt."

While someone tweeted: "It is remarkable how much this sucks."

England had a tricky Nations League period last month and did not win a single game, earning just one point out of a possible 12.

They started with a 1-0 defeat to Hungary then played out a 1-1 draw with Germany and 0-0 stalemate with Euro 2020 winners Italy.

What followed after that was a humiliating 4-0 loss to Hungary, their biggest at home since 1928.

Southgate maintains he is still the man to lead England when the World Cup begins in November.

"I won't outstay my welcome but I think I can do a good job for the team, and I think we have done a good job for the team," Southgate explained to reporters.


"If you look back I have always said it. I am not going to be here forever am I? There will be another England manager.

"The major part of that is how the players are. Do I still feel the players give everything and respond to what we do? Yes I do."

England are in Group B alongside the United States, Iran and Wales.
