Supporters want England’s training kit to replace the Three Lions’ current away strip ahead of the upcoming Euros held this summer.
For a good while now, we have seen the England training collection released, only for fans to compare it with the official home and away shirts.
When doing so, it’s left many reeling, stating that was rather see them switched, not because it just looks better but because it would really solve a lot of kit clashes.

This is like we saw with England when having to play in their blue kit against San Marino, who were in their third strip, leaving many puzzled when tuning into the fixture.
Plus us fans expect to see red as the main colour in an England away kit, yet those kit makers have gone against that yet again.
The red England training shirt is currently priced at £44.95 on the official store, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if we saw more opt for that rather than the blue away.
A few years ago, we also saw a 18-19 pre-match kit that proved to be significantly more popular than the actual home strip. Sales rocketed and there was no doubt about it that we’d see people up and down the nation wearing it proudly down your local high street.
As mentioned, supporters want England’s training kit to replace current away strip, see what they had to say over on Twitter below…
@PicardyBreezer: The red one should be the away one, hands down. The blue one that IS the away kit looks like a polo training shirt.
@whoviandan: The new England training shirts are much nicer than the actual match kits imo. The home match shirt is ok, like a France 98 throwback. That blue away shirt is absolutely hideous.
@alleon29: Is it only me who think the Red training top is better than our home kit? #England #NIKEFOOTBALL
@MikeJN73: Anything is better than both home and away new nike shirts.
@Clayton25Dan: The red one is amazing
@DanielJenks89: That should be the away shirt full stop
Again Nike have produced a training shirt for England arguably better than the match shirt. pic.twitter.com/ncWVWOZmmn

@RichLeigh: Away shirt looks like a dodgy polo shirt you’d pick up in Sports Direct for a fiver. That training top though…
@fraserb: Miles better
@KalvinMG: That training kit should have been the away kit
@NicolaFerris: The training top should be the away kit 🟥
@RipleyofAlbion: Imposters @England! We play away in Red. Don’t care!
@ForeverAYellow: Got to agree, that red England training kit should easily be the away strip! More logical sense, if needs be make the blue a third kit (if allowed)
Ollie Watkins scored on his international debut and Dominic Calvert-Lewin struck twice whilst Raheem Sterling and James Ward-Prowse added to the England goal tally as the Three Lions kicked off their qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with a comfortable 5-0 win over FIFA’s lowest-ranked side.
It’s fair to say that Gareth Southgate’s side easily should have won by more, and wasted up number of chances before the Saints’ Ward-Prowse broke the deadlock on 14 minutes, then Calvert-Lewin’s header (21) and Raheem Sterling’s finish (31) gave them a comfortable lead at half time.
Calvert-Lewin tapped in a fourth (53) from Jesse Lingard’s cutback and Watkins (83) came off the bench to mark his rise from League Two football to the international stage by adding a fifth.
Viewers were left angry however as England wore their blue kit instead of the usual home.
England at home in blue against a team that usually wears blue. Bonkers and embarrassing. 🤷♂️

@Greenfield19R: Sums up the state of the modern game – money & greed. Not for me thankyou.
@Milo_Corrigan11: I was actually confused which team was England
@pjerome8: It’s a sick joke, just confirms what most of us already know, the game is all about money and bollocks to tradition
@snevinoj: Why have England taken to the field wearing the blue of San Marino? I thought the Sammarinese had taken a shock lead. It doesn’t help that San Marino are wearing the white kit I’d normally associate with England at Wembley. Forza! Forza!
@ju_no1: England, playing San Marino, in an empty stadium, in a blue kit, with no crowd and Gareth Southgate in charge. I’d rather watch repeats of Mrs Brown’s Boys.
@LukeMorgan92: This international break has been a farce so far in terms of kits. Plenty of away vs away (or third, in this case)
@AndyHornby: Absolutely pathetic from England.
@WestDiscGolf: England Home kit is white. England are playing at home. Why are they playing in blue!?
@Lambertnffc: Not only that, it’s arguably the worst England kit ever
@Russlads: Why are England playing in a blue kit when they are at home?
