Description
White v-neck short-sleeved shirt with large geometric mesh shapes covering each breast and a row of two smaller mesh diamond shapes below each breast, aligned diagonally away from the central torso, with a third underneath. Knitted blue-grey sleeves running across the shoulders up to the collar and across the reverse, below the collar, with white and blue-grey striped cuffs. White and blue-grey striped side and back of collar, edged with a sport royal blue stripe. Thick royal blue side-seams, with white pin-stripes, running down inner sleeves right to the hem. ENGLAND in blue-grey capitalised lettering on a white panel across the back of the collar. Embroidered emblem on left breast, with blue border and a grey star above the emblem. The opponent's name in capitalised blue lettering below the emblem and the date in blue below the opponent's name (e.g. 8 OCTOBER 2016). Blue Swoosh on right breast, blue number in centre of chest and on reverse, in same font as the new red away kit, with a white border outlined in blue. White emblem at base of each number on reverse. Surname in capitalised blue lettering above number on reverse in same font. Rectangular black label on left hip with AUTHENTIC in large silver capitalised letters, with two silver lines underneath, followed by a nine-character serial number in silver below, all within a silver border occupying two-thirds of the left-hand side of the label. Remaining third comprises a black Swoosh, with a black line underneath, followed by 2016 in black below, all on a silver background of interlocking diamond shapes. DRI-FIT in capitalised grey lettering embroidered onto right hip.

White shorts. Thick blue seams, with white pin-stripes. DRI-FIT in capitalised grey lettering embroidered onto right hip. Blue number on left thigh, in same font as on shirt, with blue Swoosh underneath. Embroidered emblem on right thigh, with blue border.

Challenge red socks with a blue Swoosh on shin. 32 blue lines on back of calf, getting progressively shorter after the first 16, mirroring the shape of the calf muscle. The central section of each line is a thicker and brighter blue, apart from the lowest four lines which are made up only of the thinner and lighter blue. Patterned grey fleck footings, with red and black lines running across the soles.

Against the Netherlands, England's captain, James Milner wore a plain pink armband. In the next three friendly fixtures, the armband was red. Against Turkey, it was red with the opponent's name in capitalised white lettering and the date in white below the opponent's name, whilst against Portugal it was plain red and against Spain, the opponent's name and date were displayed in blue. The armbands worn in the three European Championship matches by Wayne Rooney were blue and featured the NO TO RACISM and UEFA RESPECT logos. For the World Cup qualification fixtures and against France, the captain wore a blue armband featuring a white C.

A ground-breaking new style of England kit was released on 17 March 2016 in the form of both home and away versions. There were eye-catching blue-grey sleeves, together with red socks, worn for the first time in the first-choice kit since 1962 (though intended as a reminder of the 1984 victory in Rio).

Despite the startling shake-up to England's traditional colour combinations, the two kits were just more examples of Nike's Vapor template, a familiar sight at the 2016 European Championship. Both finalists had almost identical Vapor designs in different colours.

England, meanwhile, were settling into a worrying pattern of under-achievement. They had a young team of Premier League talents that beat all four of the Euro 2016 semi-finalists in the run-up to (and including Wales, during) the tournament, yet they were out-fought, both mentally and physically by an Iceland team that had far exceeded its own expectations. England were left like a terrified bunch of rabbits caught in the headlights.

Clearly, Gareth Southgate had a lot of work to do to restore some pride and give England back the belief that it does have the ability to compete on the world stage.
