Sportswear giant Nike has unveiled the new home kit for the England national football team, the first since they were announced as the shirt supplier following an association with Umbro since 1954. The clean and distinctive design takes the strip back to its roots with the traditional colors of white and dark blue to celebrate the Football Association’s 150th anniversary. The blue used on the new kit is the same that featured on England’s first ever kit.

The kit was leaked by Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere who posted an image of a pupil at his former school wearing the jersey, ‘demonstrating that the kit belongs to the nation, not just the players lucky enough to represent England’. Wilshere arrived to watch a training session at the Priory School in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, before picking out lucky student Jason Kelly (now the coolest kid in school)  to wear and reveal the shirt for the first time.
