The jersey is a nod to the heritage of the Three Lions with the original crest from the first-ever meeting with Scotland being used. 

The badge was on shirts when England took on Scotland in 1872 and it will return this week to commemorate the iconic fixture. 

Captain Harry Kane actually travelled to Hamilton Crescent in Glasgow where that game took place to model the kit.

Scotland will also wear their special shirts ahead of the game, celebrating their own heritage.
