England and Nike have unveiled new home and away kits for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

Both kits will be worn at this summer’s tournament, with the white strip making its debut in a friendly against Peru at Wembley on 30 May.

“I’m always proud to put on the England kit and with these ones it’ll be no different,” said Wayne Rooney. “I can’t wait to get out to Brazil and play in them this summer.”

The new England home jersey has an engineered pinstripe in the fabric. White satin tape on the shoulders gives the jersey a distinctive shine.

“Two references really stood out during the design process for the home kit – that stunning all-white kit England wore in Mexico in 1970 and the idea of the armour of English Knights,” said Martin Lotti, Nike Football’s global design director.

The new England away jersey features a red tonal pinstripe design subtly infused with a graphic interpretation of St. George’s cross on the front.

The St. George’s cross, representing the English patron saint, is an optical illusion and cannot be seen up close, coming into focus only from a distance.
