PICTURE: Arsenal star raves about £90 England kit

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

England's new kit is courting controversy, but one Arsenal star is impressed.

Love the new England away kit

England's newest football kit is certainly attracting mixed reviews, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a fan.

The Arsenal star posted a message on his Instagram page last night, talking up the shirt.

The away kit costs £60 for a basic replica version, or £90 for what Nike term as an 'authentic match day' replica.

The price certainly provoked a lively reaction on Monday, with QPR footballer Joey Barton stating: "£90 for the new England shirt is taking the mickey out of the fans. When will it stop?"

Oxlade-Chamberlain's Arsenal teammate Jack Wilshere features in the picture he posted, with the midfielder currently out injured.

Wilshere will be desperately hoping to regain fitness to ensure he is on the plane to Brazil. If not he will be among those shelling out for the over-priced replica, although you think he can afford it.
