“It is our honor to design jerseys for the country that invented this sport.” said Martin Lotti, a major creative force at Nike. “We hope to pay tribute to the great victories in the history of English football through newly released jerseys. Since players wearing red jerseys won the 1966 World Cup, red jersey has become a symbol of England. We also hope to show respect to classic designs with new technological innovations.”
