Leah Williamson says England Women’s new away kit is the nicest she has ever seen.
Rendered in a dark red crush, a unique darker shade exclusively for the women’s team, the away kit incorporates the St. George’s Cross on the shirt and a tonal crest unique to the Lionesses.
“The colour is unique for a national team kit and it’s the nicest I’ve ever seen,” said Williamson.
“It’s smart but also trendy and female fans will want to wear it because it’s in a women’s cut so it’s feminine but also as fierce-looking as any other shirt.”
There is a fresh take on the traditional white kit with the 2019 England Women’s home look accented by dark red cuffs.
The socks, on both the home and away kits, feature a custom hand-drawn print highlighting specific flora native to the counties and regions of England which join together to represent the entire country.
Williamson added: “I love that national pride is still at the forefront of the shirt, with the flowers representing all the counties of England.”
The Lionesses will wear an all-white home kit in their penultimate World Cup warm-up match, against Denmark at a sold-out Banks’s Stadium in Walsall on Saturday 25 May.
They will then switch to the away kit when New Zealand visit Brighton for the France 2019 send off on Saturday 1 June.
England have been drawn in Group D at France 2019 alongside Scotland, Argentina and 2011 winners Japan.
Their opening match is against Scotland in Nice on Sunday 9 June.
