England played in blue in Wednesday night’s international friendly with Germany.
Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions lined up in their new Nike away strip for the first time and it got fans talking.
Will Lowley loved it.
This blue England kit is just ?

So did Peter Bragg.

However, James Catton thought it was unimaginative.
Nike taking the absolute piss with this ‘new’ England away strip. It’s the same template/shirt as the red version but is now blue.

Most of the haters were people taking issue with the fact there is no blue in the England flag, neglecting to consider that there’s loads in the Union Jack, albeit nasty Scottishy blue.

Still don’t understand why England wear blue shirts?!?! Should be either red or white

While everyone else seemed to be getting angry, Alison was just confused.
Just flicked over to the football. Was quite impressed until I realised that England were playing in blue…
