The mystery of what England's away shirt will look like for World Cup 2014 can now be revealed after a photograph has been leaked on the Internet.
Not surprisingly, England will be wearing red as their away shirt during 2014. Designed by Nike, the straightforward design features a bright red shirt, rounded collar and the infamous Three Lions crest on the chest.

Wayne Rooney could be made new United captain before the end of the season - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Manchester United are reportedly set on naming Wayne Rooney as the new club captain, and could promote the England man to top dog even before the end of the season.
Present incumbent Nemanja Vidic yesterday agreed to a move to Serie A side Inter Milan, and with Rooney's contractual situation now as water-tight as an eel's undercarriage, the Daily Star claims that David Moyes is ready to hand over the armband to Rooney, and soon.
Lallana could be the Saint to save Manchester United's midfield - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
It's not the first time someone has put these two ends of an equation toghether to make a match, but last night's England international friendly against Denmark saw Adam Lallana again underscore the talent he has and why he would be such a perfect fit for David Moyes' new Manchester United revolution.
Just how good or bad is Tom Cleverley? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
The international squads announced for the next week's round of international friendlies offered an opportunity to compare the merits of various squads. What doesn't show very favourably for England is that a midfield player of the quality of real Madrid's Isco cannot force himself into Spain's squad, whilst Tom Cleverley is, and always was going to be, in Roy Hodgson's selection.
Admiring managers watch another Terry 'tour de force' performance! - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Under the guise of at least two – if not three – admiring managers, John terry turned in another performance of organisation, grit and determination last night against Galatasaray. He did of course err to allow the Turkish champions a second-half equaliser, but that to one side, he must have impressed each of those managers.
Chelsea and Man Utd not alone in race for £22m defender - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Manchester City have reportedly joined both Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign Southampton's Luke Shaw, with the Premier League trio all desperate to snatch him up.
Shaw has burst onto the scene this year with a host of mature displays at the back for Southampton, with the 18-year-old mooted to be a dark horse in the race for a place in the England World Cup squad.
With just a matter of days, weeks, months and minutes until England fly out to Brazil before flying back again either having done well or not so well at the FIFA World Cup, Wednesday's friendly fixture against Denmark afforded boss Roy Hodgson the ideal opportunity to not only evaluate potential candidates for places in the squad, but also test and tweak the tactics with which he will either baffle or amuse the world.
England 1-0 Denmark International Friendly 5th March 2014
International friendlies are always difficult to call, what with the endless substitutions and managerial experiments, but against Denmark on Wednesday night, a Liverpool-heavy England produced a patchy display.

After San Marino's Giampaolo Mazza, Denmark's Morten Olsen is the longest serving international manager in Europe in charge of the national team since July 2000. Andy Greeves speaks to the former star midfielder about his playing days, managerial ambitions and an upcoming friendly with England.
Manchester United youngster Michael Keane was unable to play for England Under-21s against Wales this week after his twin brother was inadvertently registered for the game instead. Gareth Southgate had wanted the 21-year-old defender in his team for the game, only to discover that his brother Will, currently on loan from United to QPR, had [.
A petition to ban Tom Cleverley from representing England has received more than 4,000 signatures in less than one day. The under-fire midfielder has found himself under pressure from Manchester United fans for his performances this season, and it appears that England supporters are no more enthused about the prospect of him being in their [.
When Daniel Agger caught Jack Wilshere in Wednesday's international friendly between England and Denmark, it appeared to be a nasty knock that he would be able to run off. Even shortly after the game, Wilshere reassured everyone that it was just a bit sore and that he should be fit again soon. Not even he [.

If nothing else, then be sure of this, sometime between now and the weekend, at least one Premier League manager will be declaring his rage at meaningless international friendlies as one of his star players returns from national team duty with an injury.
A few familiar faces at Hotspur Way today as we welcomed the England team to our training ground pic.twitter.com/48c7vPpW9z Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 3, 2014 Fear not, Gooners, the Ox has not performed a reverse Sol.

"I wouldn't trust the FA to show me a good manager if their lives depended on it," Harry Redknapp, in his autobiography.
With England's preparations for the 2014 World Cup going smoothly, particularly after a convincing first half display against Denmark last night in the 1-0 victory for The Three Lions, it's time to pat The FA on the back and acknowledge that they made the right decision in appointing head coach Roy Hodgson.
Jermain Defoe's arrival in Toronto will have to wait until next week.
The 31-year-old soon-to-be TFC forward was called-up to the England National Team for their friendly match against Denmark next Wednesday at Wembley Stadium. Defoe's inclusion in head coach Roy Hodgson's 30-man squad seems to indicate that he still has a chance to make England's World Cup squad.
Confronted with a TV camera and the potential to reach an audience of millions, this cheeky mascot couldn't resist flicking the Vs as he made his way out of the tunnel ahead of last night's friendly between England and Denmark. Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson was the player lucky enough to have the privilege of holding [.
With Liverpool in sparkling form and five of England's starting 11 coming from the Reds, Roy Hodgson seemed to have adopted his tactics accordingly. None of the starters come from a team that is currently relying on a conventional 4-4-2 formation anyway. Hodgson knew that the Danes would be defensive so he initially went with [.
Southampton youngster Luke Shaw made his England debut as a half-time substitute in yesterday's drab 1-0 win over Denmark.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade Chamberlain says he doesn't know whether the injury that has blighted his season will turn out to be of benefit to England. The 20-year-old has played very little football this season after a five-month injury lay-off. That led to him being asked whether he is likely to be full of running [.
So I have done some poking around, as I tend to do. A couple folks who would know have assured me that there is no great hidden story to Sunderland boss Gus Poyet leaving Jozy Altidore out of his Capital One Cup final. He was not injured, there has been no mystery spat with a coach, no message handed down and no punishment for any particular field transgression(s) against Arsenal.
So yeah, Stuart Holden left after about 26 minutes of the Bolton Under-21 match against Everton after twice clutching at his right knee. He did jog off unattended, though, so maybe this time we can hope it is something simple. Right? I have my ear to the train tracks, waiting for info to file an MLSS report.
Feel free to correct me if I am taking this the wrong way, but it almost sounds as if Sunderland boss Gus Poyet decided today's Capital One Cup final was the perfect time to send Jozy Altidore a message by dropping the striker. "I want us to move on in the right way and I will demand it. But it is easy for me to say: ‘put this behind you and move on' and another thing for it to actually happen.
A couple of noteworthy Stuart Holden items for you today, First, there is this... Dougie Freedman has confirmed @stuholden will feature for the U21s in Monday's game against @Everton at the Reebok.

England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been discussing the wealth of Reds players in the current national squad. Gerrard is joined by team-mates Glen Johnson, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson in the 30-strong group selected by Roy Hodgson to face Denmark tomorrow evening.
England manager Roy Hodgson has been explaining his decision to call-up Southampton's Luke Shaw and Liverpool's Raheem Sterling for next week's friendly against Denmark. Saints left-back Shaw, aged 18, is named in a senior squad for the first time. Hodgson said: "I think everyone who has watched him play recently will not deny that he [.

The World Cup will dominate television sets this summer and per usual, most of the elite European nations (as well as a few South American teams) will be considered as favorites, or at the very least serious contenders. There'll be lofty expectations placed on teams like Italy, England, Germany and defending champion Spain.
