So England’s friendly match against Holland tonight isn’t going ahead.
Which means Tom Cleverley will have to wait to make his dream debut for his country, and you will definitely have to wait to make your dream debut for your country!
But as always, SportLocker are here to put a positive spin on the disappointment – as we have some images of England’s new away attire!
Having brought you news of the release last month, we can now reveal the super smart anthem jackets the England team would have worn tonight.
The wider on-pitch range will include two new Umbro anthem jackets – regatta blue for coaching staff and navy for players – which will be worn when they walk out onto the pitch.
Tailored to compliment the kit and provide comfort for the players, the anthem jacket stays in line with the sense of smartness provided by the new kit – and SportLocker think they look really smart!
Despite the fact that the postponement means less football on the TV for one night, there are still a couple of good things that come out of the game being cancelled.
Firstly, the likelihood of your club’s star players getting injured between now and the start of the Premier League season have been dramatically reduced.
Secondly, you won’t have to waste 90 minutes (plus stoppage time) of your life sitting and watching a football being passed sideways.
But most importantly, your eyes have avoided the pain that would have been looking at Joe Hart between the sticks wearing a truly hilarious kit.
The new Away goalkeeper’s shirt references the strong graphical formations used on previous England kits and carries a formation of interlocking crosses which represent the flag of St George.
The shirt is built from the latest in fabric technology in order to provide goalkeepers with the best possible help on the pitch.
With a simple, comfortable collar, the goalkeeper shirt is crafted from a special cotton fabric with panels built for stretch and movement, whilst the arms feature the same 360º pivot armhole to offer keepers maximum movement.
The lower part of the arm on the shirt offers a tight fit offering articulation and compatibility with goalkeeping gloves.
And England’s ‘numero-uno’ is rather fond of his new kit.
The goalkeeper said: “The new goalie Away shirt is lively but I really like it and am looking forward to wearing it. The strip fits really well and it reminds me of some of the goalkeeper kits I used to see on my heroes when I was a kid.”
The new England Away kit is available to pre-order now and will go on sale August 10th 2011. Visit www.umbro.com/england
