Like Kasabian years previously, this shirt made its debut, not on the football pitch, but in the boxing ring, or in the steps leading up to it.  On 2nd July 2011, David Haye, Britain's own heavyweight boxing champion, walked down to the stage wearing this very shirt, before his bout with Wladimir Klitschko, in Hamburg, Germany. Sadly... he lost his fight - bad or good omen for this shirt? Time will tell!

In a break from tradition.... which is very unlike Nike, Umbro and the Football Association, England ditched the red, and rather than return to the indigo blue tragedy of 1996, they returned the national team with some national pride, and the dark blue shirts of England that they used to wear on tour when we were a nation to be feared. Of course, like the fiasco of a bit of blue in the Liverpool away kit of 2011 ('it's too much like Everton's' in your loudest scouse accent!). The uncanny resemblance to look of Scotland will surely be a feature of the shirt's short, but hopefully illustrious career.  After all, this could be the shirt to be worn with pride in the European Championships Final in Ukraine next summer.

For the European Championship qualifying matches, England wore the UEFA RESPECT logo on the left arm and the UEFA EURO 2012 QUALIFIERS logo on the right arm. When it came to the final tournament, a separate UEFA EURO 2012 logo appeared on the right arm. Against Sweden, England wore a matching pair of galaxy blue shorts, turning it into an all-galaxy (navy) blue kit. When they played Poland, they wore the MY GAME IS FAIR PLAY FIFA logo on the left arm and the 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL QUALIFIERS logo on the right arm.
