Nike’s England Home Shirt for 2013 Revealed; Looks Like USMNT Jersey From 2010

England’s new shirt for the FA’s 150th Anniversary Year has been revealed. It’s the first England shirt from Nike after taking over from Umbro. And in typical Nike style when it comes to soccer shirts, it’s underwhelming to say the least.

While Umbro added a long legacy of classy shirt to the history of England, the new jersey from Nike is an abomination. It looks almost exactly like the US Men’s National Team jersey from the World Cup 2010 (without the sash, thank god); see photo below.

Not only is it practically a ripoff of the US Men’s National Team jersey, but England’s new jersey looks strikingly similar to the 1966 jersey worn by their bitter rivals West Germany.

How clueless or uninspired must Nike be to create this new England shirt with zero originality? There’s so much they could have done with the opportunity, but they’ve wasted it on a lazy jersey design that lacks any redeeming factors.
