Following Roy Hodgson’s England squad announcement for the upcoming friendlies against Netherlands and Germany, the Three Lions have also launched their newest – overpriced and basically identical to the last one – kits.

One major surprise regarding the new kit is the lack of claret and blue, given the fact that West Ham once won the World Cup. Furthermore, the Hammers currently have the world’s best midfielder within their ranks, Mark ‘Zero England Caps’ Noble.
Mental that Mark Noble can't get in the England squad, arguably the best performing English midfielder in the prem this season.

Away from the delusions of grandeur down at Upton Park, a huge talking point is around Wayne Rooney. Obviously his presence is expected in the photos, and in the Euro 2016 squad, given the fact he is captain, but it certainly raises questions as to who will be the fall guy come the summer tournament.
The recent squad announcement has the joint-top scorers in the Premier League, Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy, the prolific-when-fit, Daniel Sturridge, and Hodgson’s adopted son, Danny Welbeck; Theo Walcott’s inclusion certainly rustled a few feathers…
Lol @ Theo Walcott being in the England squad. Sad state of affairs.

England has taken this Make A Wish campaign for Walcott too far https://t.co/FKQW5dEfWo

…but can England sacrifice the pace of the Arsenal man for Wayne Rooney? It’s going to be a tough and hard decision for Hodgson!
