Despite a navy-blue goalkeeper's kit being introduced for the Easter international against Mexico, the FA saw fit to send David Seaman out in another blue kit (paired with black shorts and socks), just two months later.

It is difficult to understand why this was necessary, especially as it disappeared after only two games, both played at the end of the 1996-97 season.

The jersey in the photos above was worn by David Seaman as he posed with the trophy won by England at le Tournoi de France, in the photo on the right. It appears here by kind permission of the National Football Shirt Collection (England Match Shirts), also part of the Neville Evans Collection (curator Simon Shakeshaft).
