The jersey above was worn by Joe Corrigan against Brazil and is part of the Neville Evans Collection at www.englandmatchshirts.com (picture courtesy Simon Shakeshaft).

A white number 1, in the same style as on the back of the 1974 yellow jersey, was worn on the back, though by 1980, for its last appearance, the number was red.

For the first two games in which the blue jersey was worn, plus the final game of the American Bicentennial Tournament (vs. Team America in Philadelphia on 31/05/76), Ray Clemence wore the same shorts and socks as the outfield players.  When Joe Corrigan wore the blue jersey, he wore the black shorts and socks from the 1974 yellow uniform.  This may have prompted a variation to the blue jersey, which appeared in 1981. 

The 1976 version had two white stripes and a red stripe down the arms, complementing the red, white and blue shorts and socks.  However, the black shorts and socks from the 1974 yellow uniform had yellow stripes. 

A new version was introduced in 1981. Instead of the white and red stripes down the arms, it had two yellow and black stripes, thus matching the black shorts and socks.
