Due to a possible meeting with Paraguay during the 2010 World Cup knock out stages, the England national team have revealed a new third shirt that they will likely only wear in this event.
Under Fabio Capello, the team will be hopeful of progressing beyond the quarter finals which has been their major stumbling block in recent tournaments. The group stage draw has been kind to them with USA, Slovenia and Algeria expected to be brushed aside effortlessly. Likely opponents in the second round are either Serbia, Ghana or Australia. If the team overcomes that challenge, they may well meet France or Argentina in the quarter finals.
The new 2010 England third shirt is predominately blue with white sleeve cuffs and a blue round neck collar. Manufacturers Umbro place their dark blue logo in the top right of the shirt whilst the national badge is placed in the top left. A single dark blue star is positioned above the badge to represent England’s one World Cup success back in 1966. There are no other details on the jersey which is designed in a retro style just like the current home and away shirts.
