Gerrard 4 England Umbro Away Shirt 2008-2010


Gerrard 4 England Umbro Away Shirt 2008-2010 .
Used from February to November2008
When Fabio Capello became coach, at the beginning of 2008, he picked a different captain for each of his first four games, Gerrard became once in this shirt. He wore number 10 at that time.
A shirt that was reminiscent of the 1982 red Admiral shirt, with its navy and white flashes across the collarbone, was worn only five times over a period of nine months, and marked the end of the distinctive Umbro style of the past eight years.
Its debut, alongside that of England’s new Italian coach, was shoe-horned into a friendly against the normally red-shirted Switzerland. According to Umbro, its twill mesh body fabric ensured that it was lightweight and breathable.
If the design wasn’t that original, at least fans of new technology could rejoice in the QR (Quick Read) code in the label of the replica version. Scanning it with their mobile phones enabled them to access a unique website for fans of Umbro and England. A truly momentous event.
On the field, the players in this shirt performed well. It was memorable for David Beckham’s hundredth appearance and it even saw a rare England away win in Germany, before the shirt was retired, perhaps a little prematurely, due to the fact that Nike had acquired Umbro and subsequent designs were about to go retro on a grand scale. England were to go through 2009, without using a change kit at all.
