England to wear all-red '1966' shirts.
ENGLAND'S footballers will try to recreate the glory of 1966 by wearing a kit almost identical to the one worn by the World Cup winners.
The all-red kit will be unveiled three months before the start of the tournament.
The shirts, made by Football Association supplier Umbro, will be entirely red with no other colour trimmings apart from a white Three Lions England emblem on the chest. Sir Alf Ramsey's squad wore an all-red top when they triumphed at Wembley in 1966.
According to sources close to the project, the new top will have a slight V-neck whereas the 1966 shirts were crew neck. The shorts will be all-white... just like the 1966 kit.
It is expected the kit will cost around pounds 40-pounds 45 for a shirt and pounds 20-pounds 25 for shorts.
AIRLINE staff in South Africa have warned they may strike during the World Cup over pay.
