Team England to wear least practical outfit at Euro 2012

Jun '12
The England soccer team would be putting on the least practical jerseys out of all the participating teams at the Euro 2012 football tournament, according to a finding by Sweden-based Swerea IVF lab.

Swerea IVF, part of the Swerea Group, a Swedish industrial research group, offers advanced R&D and consulting services to the manufacturing and engineering industry.

Swerea IVF compared kits of all participating teams in terms of their breathing ability, sweat absorption capacity and how difficult they are to pull.

The Swedish firm judged the Umbro jerseys to be worn by England's team as the lowest in the 'breathe' section. The T-shirts also fared low in other categories.

Team Sweden's shirts, also manufactured by Umbro, were considered better than those of England's. However, Sweden's shirt was found worse than England's in terms of durability.

The research judged jerseys of five teams – Denmark, Germany, Greece, Russia and Ukraine – as the best, which are all made by Adidas using the same material.
