THE ENGLAND squad and Football Association officials model their Paul Smith designed World Cup outfits before leaving for France. The players are believed to have favoured the dark blue version of the suit, Glenn Hoddle made the final selection, opting for the lightweight beige fabric with a blue shirt and pale Italian silk tie. The team will sport specially designed cufflinks bearing the England crest. For relaxation, Smith has designed a casual outfit.
