Ever since the news in 2012 that Nike would be supplying the national team with their new shirts, then the idea of a new uniform has been hot news, the topic of conversation. The when and wherefores, and more importantly... what?

The 'when' by most, was tragically way off. The idea of a new kit being introduced to coincide with the 150 Years celebration was too much of a cue for some. Then Umbro said goodbye to England in February, when in fact, they were only saying goodbye to Wembley. Leading many to summise that the new kit will make its debut in San Marino, and thus, the fakes arrived. A rather nice one appeared in the media that had England playing in white and gold.  So when was it to be...the Football Association said all along it would be May. But how? we have never seen a Nike promotion before at this level. And so it was, on the 20th May 2013, that Jack Wilshere put the world out of its misery, and Nike, and its England followers.  He put the shirt on the back of Jason Kelly, a pupil at his old school in Hitchin.... and then proceeded to tweet his photo.

Some of us expected trumpets and fanfares, but all we got was a kazoo. Instead of 'And here's the one we have all been waiting for....', we get 'Here, have it!'.

Its typically Nike.  Put the US Soccer badge on it, and you'd have the US shirt.... in fact, put your club's badge on it, and it can be just that.  This is not brand England.  At Umbro, England were the trailblazers, clubs followed England, other countries followed England. We were the leaders and we were to be followed. But now at Nike....we are but the disciples of a burgeoning merchandising mass.

We gave football to the world.... and this is what we get in return????

For the World Cup qualification matches, England 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.
