Navy blue shorts. Broad light-blue stripe down top half of each seam, including waistband, bottom edge of stripe sloping diagonally towards the front. Seam bordered on each side by a thin red stripe, running full length on reverse, but ending on the front, slightly beyond the light-blue stripe. Two embroidered white concentric diamonds on left thigh, directly beneath red stripe. White number, in the same font as on the shirt, above the Umbro logo on left thigh, but to the right of red stripe. Embroidered emblem on right thigh, with 'ENGLAND' in capitalised white lettering inside a navy blue panel above the emblem, directly beneath red stripe. Navy blue socks, with light-blue hoop across tops, and English flag just below it, extending all around the hoop. Two large white concentric diamonds on calf.

Variations
  • Nigel Martyn wore number 13 and David James wore number 22 against Cameroon.
  • Against Nigeria, England had the 2002 FIFA WORLD CUP KOREA JAPAN logo sewn onto the right sleeve.
  • Paul Robinson wore number 13 against Australia and Denmark.
  • For the last five games in which this kit was worn, the font for the names, numbers and match details were changed to match the new 2003 white outfield kit. The names and numbers had a white border, the surname on the reverse was no longer in an arc and the match details were re-positioned to the bottom of the shirt, centrally, just above the hem, as per the outfield shirt.
  • The names of England's opponents, as they appeared in the match details, were AUSTRALIA, CAMEROON, DENMARK, MACEDONIA, NIGERIA, PARAGUAY, PORTUGAL and TURKEY. England were named first in the home fixtures (against Australia, Denmark, Macedonia, Paraguay, Portugal and Turkey). In the other five fixtures, England's name appeared second.

This outfit saw David Seaman's 75th and last appearance for England, after wearing 17 different goalkeeping kit designs in 14 years, more than any other England custodian.

It was not a happy occasion, as England dropped home points to Macedonia in a European Championship qualifier and Seaman conceded direct from a corner which went over his head, with memories of Ronaldinho's World Cup quarter-final winner still fresh from four months earlier.

Nigel Martyn's international career also came to an end, earlier in the same year, after 23 caps. David James took over from Seaman as first choice, with Paul Robinson stepping up to reserve.

The kit was actually due to appear for the first time in the game against Italy, alongside the new red change kit, three weeks earlier than the game against Paraguay, but a mix-up meant that it was replaced by the black kit at the last minute (see photos at the bottom of the page).

This shirt, part of Richard Clarke's 'Three Lions - England Match Worn Shirts' Facebook Collection, was actually issued to David James for the game against Italy in 2002, but it was never worn, because it clashed with Italy's blue kit. The mistake must have been realised late in the day, as this shirt had the embroidered match details and the black shirt that was worn against Italy, did not.
