Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling model England's new World Cup kit

England have revealed the kit they'll be wearing for the World Cup in Russia.

England have revealed the new kit they will be wearing when they storm to World Cup glory in Russia this summer.

The home shirt sees the pale blue/off-grey sleeves of the 2016-17 shirt dispensed with in favour of a return to a plain, simplistic all-white affair, complete with St George's-themed trim.

Raheem Sterling has faced criticism on and off the pitch for England and Manchester City.

Navy shorts and white socks are also back to accompany the home jersey after a brief dalliance with white and red respectively.

The away kit is once again rendered in traditional red, with subtle two-tone stripes that Nike claim "evoke speed" and "reflect the youthful wave of talent" present in the current England set-up.

Interestingly, the lettering used is a custom-created font but the design was inspired by Johnston and Gil Sans, two "quintessentially English" fonts that have been used on both overground railways and the London Underground for decades.

At least the Three Lions will look extra stylish when they inevitably go crashing out of the World Cup at the first knockout stage.
