England and Nike have unveiled their new strip for Euro 2016 and Twitter can't handle it. 

The Three Lions will stick with the traditional white home shirt but with light blue sleeves and a red away jersey with red shorts.

 

But it's the socks that people are most upset about.

Nike's Creative Director said: “For both kits we set out with the goal of bringing together the colours that are synonymous with English football: white, red and blue – flashes of contrast are used to illustrate innovative details such as the cross-dyed knitted sleeves and the ventilation-enhancing stripe on the sides of the shirts and shorts.” 

The 2016 England home and away kits will be available from nike.com and in stores starting March 24.
