England Euro16 kit launch includes photo of team crying
THE England shirt for Euro 2016 has been unveiled with a photo-shoot of the players crying.
Rather than having the squad look menacing, Nike presented Wayne Rooney weeping into Joe Hart’s chest as Josh Onomah wipes away a tear while sitting on a bench.
Shirt designer Tom Logan said: “We wanted fans to see the shirts in action, as they will be in France, so we told the players to imagine what will almost certainly happen.
“They all found it pretty easy to act out various scenarios. As well as losing to Germany, we got great shots of John Stones rueing his decision to slide in for a rash challenge in extra-time and Raheem Sterling wondering why he didn’t convert a chance from six yards.”
Logan added: “We design each national kit with the team’s needs in mind. That’s why the England shirt will only withstand four games before disintegrating like wet tissue paper.”
