thumbnail Hello,

Following the news that Umbro have ended their long association with the Three Lions, Goal.com look back at some of the best strips and asks you to vote for your favourite

The Umbro logo has been synonymous with England kits as much as heartbreaking tournament failure in recent years.

However, this long link has now come to an end (well, for the next five years at least) after Nike penned a deal which will see them create kits for both the men's and women's football teams over that period.

Football Association general secretary Alex Horne paid tribute to Umbro at Monday's announcement, telling those in attendance: “I would also like to place on record our gratitude to Umbro and their significant contribution to the game, The FA and England teams, over a 60-year period.”

Here, Goal.com takes a pictoral look at England's Umbro kits through the years.
