Adidas are reportedly angry with Nike regarding the leisure clothing that they have provided for England players during the World Cup.

Sportswear giants Nike and Adidas have reportedly entered a row over the clothing worn by England's footballers at the World Cup.

Nike are kit manufacturers for the England national team until 2018, but numerous Three Lions stars, including captain Steven Gerrard, Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Luke Shaw, Phil Jagielka, Frank Lampard and Rickie Lambert, have partnerships with Adidas.

According to the Daily Mail, Adidas are angry with the leisure clothing that Nike have provided for the players in South America, as their logo is more prominent than any reference to England.

Reports have claimed that legal action could be taken after clothing, which has been worn by the England players away from the pitch, includes T-shirts featuring Nike FC written in gold lettering with no flag of St George or three lions to represent the team.

It has been reported that Adidas have been in contact with agents of their players to call for their support in the issue.
