 All together now: The Spain team show off their new kit at Compac Theatre in Madrid on Wednesday

Spain have revealed an all-red kit for next summer’s assault on an unprecedented fourth straight international title. ‘La Roja or Ninguna’ read the banner above the team as it modelled the new strip – ‘The reds or no-one’. 

Spain have worn blue shorts with the famous red shirts since the 1920s and some supporters gave the all-red kit the thumbs down after it was unveiled in Madrid on Wednesday, saying it looked more like Turkey than Spain.

Football fans can picture Fernando Torres scoring the winner in the Euro 2008 final against Germany, or Juan Mata rounding off the scoring against Italy as their title was defended four years later, and it is easy to think of the familiar red shirts and dark blue shorts. 

Andres Iniesta struck the only goal of the World Cup final against Holland in 2010 while wearing Spain's all-blue alternative kit, but the squad changed into their red and blue home kit to lift the trophy.

So it remains to be seen if Cesc Fabregas and co can write a new chapter in Spain's glorious footballing history with a triumph wearing nothing but red.
