There was mass confusion last night as England and the Netherlands appeared to "swap kits" in a friendly.
The Lionesses came from behind to thrash the Dutch 5-1 at Elland Road, with Beth Mead hitting a brace and Lucy Bronze, Ella Toone and Lauren Hemp all getting in on the act.
Even for a friendly win it was a huge statement from England ahead of the Women's Euros which they are hosting next month.
But the main talking point for a lot of supporters was the two sides more or less wearing each other's colours.
Of course England typically wear white, with the Netherlands always associated with orange.
But on this occasion, England were sporting a blood orange strip and Dutch wearing a white top with blue shorts for their away kit.
If you flicked on ITV and had no knowledge of the fixture, you'd have automatically assumed that England were wearing white and the Netherlands in their usual orange.
The legendary Ian Wright, who was providing punditry for the game, led the reaction to the kits:
Have England and Netherlands swapped kits for the women's football?— Grumpy (@TheMrGrumpy) June 24, 2022
England women playing Holland with both sides wearing each other’s kits. Very odd.— Christiano (@Christian_Dyer) June 24, 2022

this is going to be very confusing for anyone casually tuning in https://t.co/eqQaEZiAnp— el (@grasseasons) June 24, 2022
Very confusing that England are wearing their glowy orangeish kit against the Netherlands, who are wearing white— mark thompson (@TweetsByMarkT) June 24, 2022
took my friend with me for his first football match, had a hard time explaining that England were the ones in the orange kit and netherlands were in white 🤣 what a crazy kit decision ahaha— jessica 💛 (@leaguelyblonde) June 24, 2022
England really put five past the Netherlands wearing their kit, the disrespect— CavsFactory (@SadFactory) June 25, 2022
This has to be one of the worst @KitCrimes I’ve ever seen. England are home and usually wear white and navy. Netherlands usually wear orange and black. So why are England wearing their away orange and black kit and Netherlands are wearing their white and blue away kit. — Steve Clarke (@clarkey85steve) June 24, 2022
Ridiculous that England are playing in their all orange away kit and Netherlands are playing in their white shirts with blue shorts away ensemble. The colour of England's could best be described as high viz jacket— Luke Edwards (@LukeEdwardsTele) June 24, 2022
Right. Hang on just a second. England are playing The Netherlands whilst wearing an orange kit, and The Netherlands are playing England, whilst wearing a white kit? Time for bed I think https://t.co/fZ9jC2NtSp— Daniel Sutton (@Danielsutton96) June 24, 2022
England v Netherlands kits are like the incongruent stimuli part of a Stroop test pic.twitter.com/2OqRC6Kbqm— Elspeth Kirkman (@Karminker) June 24, 2022
England Women looking like the Netherlands in that kit while playing the Netherlands confused me for a while.— Matthew Sowerby (@MJSowerby) June 24, 2022
I was confused for a moment where England are playing in an orange kit and the Netherlands in white shirts and blue shorts 🤔— Andrew Graham (@1dmouse) June 24, 2022
To add to the absolute perplexity, England's manager is Sarina Wiegman, who played for and managed the Netherlands - guiding them to their first ever women's Euros title in 2017.
And that's not all. These days the Netherlands are being managed by Mark Parsons, the former Chelsea reserve coach who succeeded Weigman in 2021.
Next up for England is a final pre-tournament friendly with Switzerland on June 30. They then take on Austria in the curtain-raiser at Old Trafford at Old Trafford on July 6.
Further Group A games will take place against Norway and Northern Ireland in the South Coast at the Amex Stadium and St Mary's on 11 and 15 July.
