The uniform made again by Umbro, made its debut in the home friendly match against Spain on 7 February 2007.  It is expected to last until the end of 2008, possibly the first match of 2009.

This uniform was 'unleashed' (Umbro copyright!) onto the nation via Ebay, not the planned route of attack - the winning bidder would still wait until after the shirt was in the shops before receiving it. 

What is surprising about the style of this shirt, is what you don't see... The squiggly blue stripe ( EFO) down either side is actually an abstract of the three lions crest, which now makes a mess look very smart.  The Umbro diamond that straddles the shoulder, the all-seeing eye will notice the navy on the left-hand side, but its the white on the right that compliments.  A gold diamond now adorns the shoulder area, presuming Umbro are now rewarding themselves with another commercial success, it's nothing more than an iron-on patch on the replica shirt, assuming it's actually gold embroidery on the match worn shirts.  The crest is larger than with previous shirts.  Navy blue shorts with a couple of umbro diamonds and a single line.

Accompanying white shorts were used for the first time against Andorra in Barcelona.  Rather than using the white shorts from the 2006 Away Uniform, these shorts were clearly identical to those of the navy.

One more notable addition is the evidence that 'global warming' is alive and kicking in England, because for the first time since 2001, no collar is on the home shirt.  Further evidence is given to us by Umbro themselves.  More technological advances, which convinces us that Umbro just put the words in a different order and give it a new title - in the case this year 'Climate Control'.  For according to Umbro, the shirt is the most hi-tech yet, using a special fabric called Trilogy, to control the microclimate between the skin and the shirt.  It draws sweat away from the skin and tiny pores to help heat escape, so that the players stay cool and dry in the heat of the action... apparently.

The UEFA EURO 2008 logo was heat-pressed onto the upper right arm for the European Championship qualifying fixtures and a commemorative Wembley logo, incorporating the venue, date, Three Lions emblem and Brazilian flag appeared on the right arm against Brazil.  Then, for the World Cup qualification fixtures, the SOUTH AFRICA 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP logo was introduced.
