‘This took five minutes’ – Chelsea fans say leaked away kit is identical to England strip


Chelsea fans have been left baffled as their new away kit looks set to be a carbon copy of the latest England strip.

Nike recently released the Three Lions’ threads for Euro 2024, with many fans originally loving the design before heavy debate was sparked about the adaptation of the St George’s flag on the collar.

But despite most fans enjoying the rest of the design of the kit, Blues supporters have now been joking their new strip looks like Nike took five minutes tweaking their design for England’s.

Footy Headlines, who are typically bang on when it comes to ‘leaking’ kits, unveiled Chelsea’s away colours – a white shirt with the details of the Blues’ badge in red with a blue background.

The collar looks exactly the same as the Three Lions’, bar the controversial flag.

The shirt even has the same lined detailing as England’s too.

There’s even a similar panel detailing on the sides, while the Nike tick has a red outlining.

Chelsea’s version does have a red line down the shoulders, though, unlike England’s.

“England shirt with 5 minutes worth of design tweaks,” one unimpressed Chelsea fan wrote on X.

Another wrote: “I miss you everyday @adidas.”

“This is literally Three Lions kit but with a Chelsea badge on it,” a third added.

Chelsea fans can get a feel for what their new away kit will look like in the flesh, given England are set to debut their new strip at Wembley on Saturday in their friendly against Brazil.
