In February 2012, sports manufacturers Umbro revealed a new home kit with a modified version of the FA's crest. For the first time the England shirt was designed purely from red and white. In February 2012, John Terry was stripped of the captaincy for the second time after he was formally charged for racism offences regarding to an incident in a Premier League match with Queens Park Rangers player Anton Ferdinand, the brother of former England teammate Rio Ferdinand. Capello told Italian media that he did not agree with the FA's decision to strip Terry of the captaincy. This resulted in rumours that Capello had breached his contract in that he always had to back decisions made by the executive board. After an urgent meeting was called, on 8 February, the FA confirmed that Capello had resigned from the manager's job with immediate effect. This occurred on the same day that Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was cleared of charges for tax evasion and straight away, fans, press and other football figures backed Redknapp for the vacant role. Capello's former assistant Stuart Pearce took charge for a friendly match against Netherlands, a match rescheduled from the previous summer, in which Netherlands won 3–2 and Scott Parker took the temporary role as captain. In that, the England home kits were changed again from blue and white to red and white, with the crest now in a complete red colour. On 1 May 2012, the FA announced that Roy Hodgson would take over as manager of the team from Euro 2012 onwards. Steven Gerrard was promoted back to the captaincy when the provisional team squad for the tournament was announced. England's first two games under Hodgson were friendly matches against Norway away from home and Belgium at home, both these games ended in 1–0 wins for England.
