##England's national side has unveiled a brand new #away kit, as the team prepares for the upcoming international break. The dark blue kit will make it's debut as England face-off against Germany this week in a friendly, before they play Lithuania in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The new kit, once again designed by Nike, replaces the previous red kit, in favour of a #Midnight Blue colour. The kit includes a brand new light blue coloured England crest and will be available for fans to buy on 22nd March - the same day that England play Germany..
Looking to the future
The kit was modelled by young Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford, as the 3 Lions try and build for the future after a disastrous Euro 2016. Despite his lack of playing time in the tournament, Rashford was one of the more impressive players in a lacklustre side, and is in the squad for the upcoming matches.
The striker took to social media to model the kit, as well as talk about England's heartbreak from Euro 2016, when they were embarrassingly dumped out of the tournament by surprise package Iceland.
The kit appears to usher in a new wave of players to the national side, as they look to qualify for the World Cup in Russia. The new kit will not be the only one making a potential debut, as three uncapped players are included in manager Gareth Southgate's first England squad: Midfielder James Ward-Prowse, Winger Nathan Redmond and defender Michael Keane. West Ham United winger Michail Antonio could have made his debut but had to pull out of the squad due to injury. Jermain Defoe also returns to the side after nearly a four-year absence
Reminiscent of the past
England's new away kit, however, may not have such fond memories for some. With a dark blue design, it is similar to their 2011/12 away kit - famously worn when Wayne Rooney lashed out against Montenegro, earning himself a red card and suspension.
Skipper Rooney, and the rest of the England squad will be hoping to banish the painful memories of performances-past, and usher in a new era of English football, starting against Germany in Dortmund on Wednesday 22nd March.
