England to play in all red against Germany

Potentially lucky kit gets another outing

England and Germany will line-up in the same colours as in 1966 when they meet in their World Cup second round clash on Sunday.

The all-red kit which saw England to victory against Slovenia, after two draws in white, will get another outing to test whether it truly is a lucky kit.

The Umbro designed kit was supposed to be worn with white shorts (for that authentic 1966 look), but as in the Slovenia game Fabio Capello and his men have again chosen to wear red shorts instead.

    I’m not liking the all red. It looks like Poland (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but it doesn’t look like England.

    the red doesnt look that good. I’m assuming since germany tops their group and england come second, germany had first choice of home kit? i prefer their blacks, but oh well. i doubt we’ll see those again in this tournament.

    That kit won`t avoid a penalty shoot out! 🙂
