England fans say new team shirt is a real winnerApril 2nd, 2009 - 2:33 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.2 (ANI): The new England shirt goes on sale today and fans reckon that it is a real winner.
Umbro’s latest design was given its first run when England took on Slovakia last Saturday. It features the famous Three Lions crest and a snazzy button-up collar.
The 50-pound shirt has been designed with comfort in mind.
The Daily Star quoted David Blanch, Umbro senior designer and the man behind the kit, as saying that: “It’s flexible and comfortable.”
England fan Jon Elsom, 28, left, a surveyor from Hornchurch, Essex, said: “It’s awesome! It’s a lot more stylish than the old one. I’d definitely wear it, whereas I wouldn’t have done with the old one. This is the kind of shirt we could win the World Cup in.” (ANI)
