In conjunction with the launch of the team’s 2011/12 outfield player away kit, the England Umbro 2011/12 away kit was released on Friday. Here’s a look at the shirt that Joe Hart and the rest of England’s goalies will wear on the road over the next year and Umbro’s description of it. Both jerseys are now available at the World Soccer Shop England Store.
Joe Hart will be dazzling opposition defences from now on as he wears the new England Away goalkeeper shirt, featuring a graphic created by innovative designer Peter Saville. The new kit, which accompanies the new England Away outfield shirt, is a colourful creation featuring a tessellating graphic on the arms and chest. The St George’s flag-inspired graphic which features on the current England home shirt has been developed to create this inter-locking design in various shades of green. It’s not all about the look though…
The shirt is built from the latest in fabric technology in order to provide keepers like Joe Hart 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 as the outfield shirt to offer goalkeepers maximum movement.
The lower part of the arm on the goalkeeper shirt are also crafted with the specifics of the player in mind, with a tight kit offering articulation and compatibility with goalkeeping gloves. With the England crest and the Umbro logo embroidered on the chest, the shirt is a colourful addition to the new England Away collection.
