WHAT DO WE THINK?
Umbros brand new England away shirt has been unveiled and deposed captain John Terry has been kept well away from the launch. The Chelsea star had been an important part of the shirts marketing process and was heavily featured in viral advertisements and on the Umbro official website.
Alas, in a shift away from using the Chelsea defender and his national team cohorts to launch the kit, the English sports brand instead turned to popular rock band Kasabian.
Chelsea star Terry was last week stripped of the England captaincy by Italian coach Fabio Capello after allegations surrounding his sexual indiscretions caused a media storm. The Blues defender has since been replaced by former vice-captain Rio Ferdinand, although the Manchester United centre-back is currently sidelined by suspension.
