England posed for a team photo in their official M&S outfits for Euro 2024 after arriving in Germany on Monday evening.

The Three Lions’ 26-man squad and Southgate were all smiles as they were decked out in their M&S gear, which was worth £205.

Each star was sporting loafers, priced at £55, £45 trousers, a £60 bomber jacket either in black or cargo colour and a half zip knitted polo shirt worth £45.

England’s outfits come as part of a wider partnership with M&S, who are the official tailor of both the Men’s and Women’s teams.

The Three Lions’ casual off field clothing follows a recent change in trends. Traditionally, teams would wear suits at tournaments, such as at Euro 2020 when England were snapped in navy blue suits, but at the 2022 World Cup things became more relaxed.

The team photo was released on Monday evening after Southgate and his squad had arrived in Germany ahead of their tournament opener against Serbia on Sunday.

The 26-man group were pictured boarding their plane at Birmingham Airport on Monday afternoon before they touched down at the regional Erfurt-Weimar Airport at 6.18pm local time.

The Three Lions then took their official team coach to their base at the Weimarer Land Spa and Golf Resort on the outskirts of Blankenhain, a town nestled in a forest with a population of fewer than 7,000 people.

That came after dozens of local residents, and police, had been eagerly awaiting their arrival.

The viewing terrace at Erfurt-Weimar Airport was packed with excited fans 90 minutes before the team, 3-1 favourites for the tournament, touched down, with England and Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane the major attraction.

Outside the airport, a long line of police vehicles were parked up yards away from the England team bus since shortly after the squad departed Birmingham Airport.

As the team, dressed all in black, walked out of the terminal building and on to their coach in ones and twos, a crowd of more than 200 cheered each player in turn. 

Conor Gallagher acknowledged the applause with a ‘thumbs up’ gesture, while John Stones waved and smiled shyly.

The coach then took the Three Lions to their Weimarer Land Spa and Golf Resort, which England have paid approximately £850,000 for.

At the venue, the players will find three golf courses, a padel court and even a robot called Robbie, who only speaks German, to serve the squad and collect their dishes. 

Each England star’s outfit consisted of black or cargo coloured suede loafers, priced at £55

Marcus Rashford had featured in the release of M&S’ England formalwear range for Euro 2024

The team photo came after England’s formalwear range for the tournament was launched last month.

Gallagher, Aaron Ramsdale and Marcus Rashford featured in the release, despite the Man United forward having been snubbed by Southgate this summer.

The trio modeled the range which includes overshirts, blouson jackets, a quarter zip knit sweater and straight-leg trousers.

After facing Serbia on Sunday, the Three Lions will also take on Denmark and Slovenia in their group as they hope to win their first tournament since 1966.
