Germany will see red against England

FIFA have confirmed England will wear their 'lucky' all red kit against Germany in Bloemfontein on Sunday. As the designated away team, it was always likely England would be forced to wear their change strip, as they did against Slovenia, to avoid a clash with their old rivals.

But by again electing for red shorts, as opposed to the white ones they intended to adorn in their 'away' strip, they can wear exactly the same colours as they did on Wednesday night.

It is believed to be the players' preference anyway and they have never lost wearing all red, as they had done on four occasions prior to the Slovenia encounter.
