It’s been revealed that Scotland will wear their pink away kit when they play England at Wembley next Friday, which is sure to come as bad news for the Tartan Army.

Fifa have ruled that the white sleeves of Scotland’s blue home kit clash with England’s home strip, and the Auld Enemy will change as a result.

Scotland have lost three of their four games they’ve played in the strip, including the 3-0 defeat in Slovakia last month.

FIFA released a statement saying: “If the two teams’ colours might cause confusion, the host team shall be entitled to wear its official team kit and the visiting team shall use its reserve team kit or, if necessary, a combination of the official and the reserve team kits.”

There have been some terrible football kits over the years, but Scotland’s colourful away strip might be up there with the worst ever worn on the international stage.

Gordon Strachan’s team are no strangers to bad kits either – remember the unlucky maroon monstrosity they wore in their shock loss against Georgia in 2007?

Tune into England vs Scotland on Friday, November 11 to see the pink strip in action.

The World Cup qualifier takes place on Armistice Day, and there has also been controversy about the inclusion of poppys on the kits, as Fifa bans political, religious or commercial messages on shirts.
