Navy blue shorts, with yellow hem. Broad yellow 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 yellow 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 English flag extending all around the tops. Two large white concentric diamonds on calf.

Variations
  • Against Sweden, England had the 2002 FIFA WORLD CUP KOREA JAPAN logo embroidered onto the right sleeve.

  • Against Sweden, the font for the names, numbers and match details were the same as for the 2001 black goalkeeper's kit. The numbers did not have a white border and the surname on the reverse was in an arc.

  • The names of England's opponents, as they appeared in the match details, were ARGENTINA, SPAIN, SWEDEN and UKRAINE. England were named second against Spain and first in the other three fixtures.

This rarely-used kit had a high-profile introduction in England's opening match of the 2002 World Cup (one of three goalkeeping outfits worn during the tournament), but it only appeared four times. Its second and third airings were over two years later, and its final appearance was a further year after that.

The preference for blue and black goalkeeping tops at this time led to the longevity of this kit as an occasional third-choice and it appeared alongside three successive outfield home kits.

The shirt in the photos above was issued to David Seaman for the game with Sweden. 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).
