The two national teams are set to face each other in a friendly on Friday, but England has been mocking Spain's new kit for its resemblance to a regurgitated version of Spain's national dish.

Spain's official strip for Euro 2016 went down well at its grand unveiling this week; a vintage twist on the classic red and yellow design of La Roja. 

But sadly the same cannot be said for the team's away kit, which has been ridiculed on social media since it was unveiled in Paris this week. 

The white strip, splattered with yellow triangles is designed by Adidas, but even the clout of one of the world's biggest sports brands has not saved the shirt from being torn to shreds by social media users. 

 

 

 

 

While the general consensus was that the shirt resembled some kind of regurgitated foodstuff, some people were brave enough to declare that they actually quite liked the unusual design. 

 

 

 

The England team will take on Spain in Alicante on Friday night in a pre-Euro 2016 friendly.
