England World Cup shirt is £90 - but here's a £16 alternative
The Three Lions unveiled the kit they'll be wearing in Brazil earlier today
England today unveiled the all-white kit that will be worn at this summer's World Cup - but if fans want to look like Stevie G and Co, they'll have to fork out £90 for the 'match' shirt.
The new strip, which pays homage to the 1970 England team that went to the tournament in Mexico, has received a warm welcome for its design, but the price tag has been met with disbelief.
Stan Collymore, who picked up three England caps during his career, labelled it a "rip off" and "joke" on Twitter.
Shadow sports minister Clive Efford said the price of the shirts was "disappointing" while QPR midfielder Joey Barton called it "appalling".
The £90 price tag is for the 'match' shirt, while there is a somewhat cheaper £60 'stadium' version also available. The difference between the shirts is minimal, with makers Nike explaining the more expensive version features a tailored fit and a new 'sweat-wicking fabric', designed to keep the wearer cool.
For those unwilling to stump up the £90, or even £60, there might be an alternative, albeit highly unofficial. Its been suggested on Twitter that fans could buy a white Nike t-shirt and then sew on an England badge themselves...

England are being given little hope of progressing far in Brazil, with many predicting a group stage exit after games with Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica. The tournament kicks off on June 12.
