England launched their new kit for Euro 2016 today, and it caused quite a reaction on social media.
People took to their keyboards to furiously vent their anger via the 140-character platform that is Twitter, and some of them were hilarious.
It’s safe to say the new design, which features weird grey-blue sleeves and red socks, didn’t meet everyone’s approval.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Some people reacted with the usual English pessimism:
If your not a fan of the New England kit, don't worry too much, you'll only see it 3 times then we'll be out in the group stage ?

While others just stated the fucking obvious:
The good news about the new England kit is that if you don't like it then you don't have to buy it. Radical.

There was good news for overlooked West Ham midfielder Mark Noble though:

Meanwhile, this guy’s kid must have some snazzy pyjamas:

Others just said what they felt, no need for anything clever:
Do not like the New England kit

But we did find one person who actually liked it, and he wasn’t afraid of the backlash:
I'm just going to say it, I like the new England kit.

And some were just honest about things:
I can't promise I won't have bought the full New England kit by next week…

This bloke summed up the Twitter explosion quite nicely:
New England kit launch day, also known as the day everyone becomes a fashion expert.

Whether you’re a fashionista or not, the England kit is all over Twitter and will cause debate until the next one comes out in six months…
