This navy blue kit, generously edged with red, and paired with black socks, stuck around for over two years, either side of the 1998 World Cup.

During the World Cup, the jersey was modified to include the words FIFA WORLD CUP FRANCE 1998 in white underneath the emblem.

The jersey in the photo top left, was worn by Ian Walker in a B international against Russia at Loftus Road, London on 21 April 1998. 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).
