England kit for the 2022 World Cup was apparently leaked online just over two months before Gareth Southgate’s side left for Qatar.
While Three lions are yet to confirm their 26-man squad for the tournament, fans may already know what the squad will be wearing next November when they kick off their campaign against Iran.
England 2022 World Cup Kit ‘Leaked’
Footy headlines has shared a leaked image showing Nike’s efforts to pay tribute to England’s Euro 96 kit when England hosted.
England reached the semi-finals of this tournament led by Terry Venables with a side that included England’s current boss Southgate.
Fans will again see their team on the pitch in a white stripe with light blue trimmings.

Fans are apparently upset to see the modern take on the classic flick. One social media user tweeted: “It looks like workout clothes at best. The away game is so much more sophisticated. I am in favor of switching things up and using the red as the home kit for the next year/2 years.
“I would rather pay for an old top from CFS than buy this house. Don’t do it for me.”
Another added: “Doesn’t look right as it has no red. Won’t buy this. I’ll be keeping an eye on the time before the game and maybe away, but I already have the feeling that if I buy a World Cup shirt it won’t be this one.”
“Horrible, I really don’t like this Nike template, it has a very strange shape around the shoulders, neck and chest,” added a third.
Despite the negative response, fans will not care if England go one better after their penalty shoot-out loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
The Three Lions will be looking to win their first major trophy since 1966, inspired by the Lionesses Euro 2022 triumph in July.
England meet Iran, USA and Wales in Group B in November but first face Italy and Germany later this month in the Nations League.
