England's home and away World Cup kits have been revealed by Nike 73 days before the Brazil finals.

It was confirmed earlier this month the Three Lions would don an all-white strip for a second successive major tournament, following their one-colour ensemble at the European Championship two years ago.

England have played eight of their World Cup matches in an all-white strip, with the most recent coming in the soporific goalless draw with Algeria in 2010.

And England will again be kitted out in their traditional red away replica for a World Cup, having donned a navy blue strip against Sweden at Euro 2012.

Steven Gerrard, Joe Hart, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Jack Wilshere, Ross Barkley, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling modelled the new kits, which could prove to be embarrassing for the injured Wilshere, whose fitness and form could deny him a World Cup squad berth.

The new white shirt sports an old-school V-neck, while the red away kit has been designed with a round neck, rather than the collar Nike provided England with for their debut away effort last year.

Both efforts are improvements on Nike's maiden efforts , in which the home garb was likened to West Germany's 1974 strip.

Nike became England's new kit supplier last year, ending the Football Association's 30-year partnership with Umbro, who are owned by Nike.

Umbro almost exclusively tailored England's kits until the Nike deal, with the exception of Admiral's revered eight-year stretch between 1974 and 1982.
