After suffering defeat to France, England stars determined to up their game are already preparing to overcome the elements for their next friendly match against Argentina in February.

Several squad members are feeling the benefit of Under Armour’s brand new ColdGear baselayer mocks during training. The brand˘ popularity continues to win over rugby fans, but football fans are fast following suit as its ColdGear baselayers prove essential training gear for all sports.

While the France match was the ideal proving ground for a number of new faces Ĺ› including Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson, Chris Smalling and Jay Bothroyd Ĺ› Under Armour ambassador, injury-stricken Fulham striker Bobby Zamora, is 100% determined to earn more stripes, and aims to be match fit for the Argentina clash.

He said: “It’s a great feeling to represent your country. I wish I could have been in the squad for the France match, but my rehab is going great and with the cold conditions kicking in, I’ve been recuperating in my new ColdGear kit. Not only does it keep my body temperature at a premium, it allows to me move around much easier.”

Zamora also thinks the England squad would benefit from Armour’s ColdGear range for both club and country matches throughout the winter months, as the product is proven to help players perform at their best.

He said: “I would love to see the England squad decked out in Under Armour in the future. We all want the team to do well in matches and at major tournaments, so performance enhancing kit is only going to be beneficial – it’s something to think about for sure.”

    this may be an ignorant statement from across the pond but i cant see the English abandoning Manchester based Umbro for Under Armour hailing from Baltimore. But maybe the Nike ownership voids that. if i were Reebok/Adidas i’d be jumping on that patriotic spirit… but thats just me… as a yank im rooting for UA
