Why the band of Wags ditched designer gear for watching Three Lions in their shirts

Tactical substitution: Why the band of low-key Wags at this World Cup ditched designer gear for watching Three Lions in their shirts

  • The England Wags have made a pact to ditch designer clothes and bling
  • The Wags have decided to wear replica shirts in a bid to avoid the spotlight
  • A source close to the England camp said: ‘This gang of Wags is very different’
  • The Foreign Office have advised visitors to Qatar that women are expected to cover their shoulders and avoid wearing short skirts 

Their antics have in the past overshadowed the team’s performance.

So this time the England stars’ wives and girlfriends have made a pact to ditch designer clothes and bling while watching World Cup matches in Qatar.

Instead, the Wags have decided to wear replica shirts in a bid to avoid the spotlight. Harry Kane’s wife Katie, 29, and Jack Grealish’s model girlfriend Sasha Attwood, 26, have worn the white Three Lions shirt while Harry Maguire’s wife Fern, 28, was seen in the red second strip and Megan Pickford, 26, opted for a yellow jersey to match goalkeeper husband Jordan.

It also follows a very public legal battle between footballers’ wives Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney. A source close to the England camp told the Daily Mail: ‘For so many years, football matches have been a fashion show. This gang of Wags is very different.

‘They are there to support the team and not make it all about them. Nobody is sitting there discussing what they are wearing – the talk is about what is happening on the pitch, not off it.’

The Foreign Office have advised visitors to Qatar that women are expected to cover their shoulders and avoid wearing short skirts. 

It is understood that some of the WAGs, including Mrs Maguire, 25, and Mrs Pickford, 26, were left upset by the revelation that Mrs Vardy set up a paparazzi shot of WAGs outside a restaurant during the Russia World Cup in 2018. 

The women had no idea what Mrs Vardy had done until it came out in court documents and so are determined that this time they will go under the radar. 

One WAG said: ‘None of us want it to go back to that, ever.’

WAGs including Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Tweedy left FA bosses furious at the 2006 World Cup in Germany when they partied and shopped in Baden-Baden while staying in a different hotel to the team. 

Their dancing on tables and expensive bar bills made more headlines than the England team, which was managed by Sven-Goran Eriksson. It prompted Eriksson’s successor Fabio Capello to ban wives and girlfriends from the 2010 World Cup.
