New England 2008 away Umbro kit launched

The new 2008 England Away Kit was officially launched this afternoon and will make its debut at Wembley on Wednesday for Fabio Capello's first game in charge.

The new shirt, which sees the Three Lions crest in the centre of the chest, will be worn during the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign and will mark the beginning of a new era for the team. England’s rich heritage is married with revolutionary technology by incorporating a QR (Quick Read) code into the shirt’s label. This effectively serves to bring the shirt to life, enabling fans to access a unique QR website.

Upon photographing the code with their mobile phones, fans will be taken to the website where they can obtain exclusive content about UMBRO and England.

This is the first time that QR code has ever been incorporated into a football shirt.As regards the strip’s other technical features, comfort and ease of movement is central in the shirt's design. The shirt has been anatomically cut to emphasise the athleticism of the player, whilst a twill mesh body fabric ensures that it is both lightweight and breathable. Other benefits include a hybrid neckline and a specially shaped underarm gusset, which maximise comfort and mobility.

    Hi,

    I actually like this shirt alot and it has good quality, just go to a store and see yourself!My friends and I have always been wondering why people want Umbro to go. Look at the cheap Puma shirts from this Euro,not sure if you want that!
    Anyway,I have a question. I have a few shirts with match day transfer on it (eg. France v England 26.03.2008). Does anyone know where I could find one for the Sweden game at the World Cup (needs to be in gold to fit the red jersey and its gold numbering) and any game at the euro 04 where England wore the white home shirt?I really hope to hear from you T H A N K S alot!

    probably the best thing that mclaren ever did for the english nation was ensuring that england wouldnt have to be seen at a major tournament in this hideous thing!

    the wngland kits are going much down hill, and the football seems to be following. If this form is due to the kit, are germans in contol of kit design???? and umbro? sack umbro bring back the days of Admiral before i was even born. And if they hav gone out of businessthen its time for Nike to step in

    the england football team typifies umbro (or maybe vice versa) perfectly at the moment. umbro is such a dull brand and it\'s their kits are almost a metaphor for the way our football has been for too long now.

    i swear if we got sponsored by nike we\'d instantly become awesome!
    capello\'s captain should be rooney and our kit supplier should be nike.
    if these two ideas were put into practice 2010 is pretty much in the bag.

    (i\'m actually being serious!)

    Based on those jerseys, england shouldnt qualify for South Africa 2010.

    sounds strange but England have had shocking kits for at least a decade now. maybe they need adidas to sponsor them. It could spark freshness into the team. Its been so bland

    Not as nice as the lovely Italia top...Forza Italia..Oh God , no , I didn\'t mean that.
    I\'m sure that Senor Rio will look fantastico in this Umbro top. It shall mask his ugliness and his dodgy passing , by the sheer ghastlyness of the Umbro top.
    I agree that the 82 Away top was a classic , very retro and very trendy..still to this day.
    Italy also had a classic strip , that led them on their way to a fantastic World Cup Win.
    Oh God...I\'ve messed up again...I hope the camera will not be on me , whenever England meet my beloved Italia...what to sing
    Ciao
    Fabio

    [quote=AH!!]Disgusting! Goalie is nice though. Support Iraq. They are much betterings.

    So basically, at the current exchange rate this shirt costs approximatley 45 pounds ninety nine pence.

    In order to wire you the merchandise directly I require a few details.

    Nothing personal madame. Simply just your bank account details and sort code.
