England meets Germany in all-red strip

Posted By: Staff

Rustenburg, Jun 25: The England team will face Germany in World Cup prequarter game in their 'lucky' all-red strip on Sunday, Jun 27.

Steven Gerrard will lead his side out in the red tops, shorts and socks, which the side wore in their 'do-or-die' Group C game against Slovenia.

An in-depth statistical analysis revealed that England has won four times out of five when they have played all in red, and the tops also stir memories of the Three Lions' victory over West Germany in the 1966 final.

FIFA are expecting 20,000 British as well as 20,000 Germans in Bloemfontein's 45,000-seater Free State stadium.
