ShareNever mind dodgy keepers, what about these dodgy goalie tops?

Everton have been invisible in the transfer market this summer and judging by their new strip, they want Tim Howard to blend in too. if he joins the army.

And England's No 1 will also be forced to don a dodgy kit after Sportsmail revealed that Joe Hart will be pulling on a bright green one.

Everton are traditional slow starters in the Barclays Premier League but Howard will be looking to avoid any blame by simply merging in with the background.

The new England blue away top meanwhile controversially ditches traditional red - the colour worn by Bobby Moore and co during the nation's finest hour in 1966 - and does not appear to be going down well with England supporters. 

In a Sportsmail poll asking fans whether they would buy replica shirts, 72 per cent voted no.

The kit will be worn for the first time in the friendly against World Cup finalists Holland - who will no doubt be resplendent in traditional orange and white - at Wembley on August 10.

The grand unveiling of England's latest strip backfired spectacularly with David Haye's humiliation at the hands of Wladimir Klitschko in Hamburg on Saturday night.

These strips are far from the first to raise an eyebrow or two. Mexico goalkeeper Jorge Santos designed his own but presumably didn't pursue a career in fashion once his playing days were over.
