When England travelled to Romania for a World Cup qualifying match in October 1980, Ray Clemence would probably have expected to wear a blue jersey, as Romania wore yellow shirts. However, he took to the field in a green adidas jersey.

It was identical to the one worn by the Romanian 'keeper, apart from the fact that it had no emblem. As Clemence wore the black shorts and socks that were normally worn with the yellow jersey, we can only assume that England accidentally packed the yellow and were left with no option but to borrow an alternative from their hosts. Whatever the reason, it also affected the Under-21 team, because John Lukic wore a plain blue jersey in the previous day's Under-21 international.

Coincidentally, when England opened their defence of the World Cup against Romania, in their previous meeting, back in 1970, Gordon Banks took to the field in a yellow shirt, thus clashing with the Romanian shirts and he had to change into a red shirt at half-time.
