A different black shirt appeared during the 2004 European Championship and was worn with the shorts and socks from the 2003 all-black kit, which had been worn in the opening game of the tournament, against France.

Although it had the correct logos sewn onto the arms, and the match fixture and date in white in the middle of the chest, the emblem was only printed in white. On all other England kits, up to this point, the emblem had been rendered in red, white and blue. The other main differences were the two white stripes down each arm and the absence of red on the shirt.

This absence of red may have been the reason for the introduction of the shirt as Croatia's red and white chequered sleeves would have clashed with the large red patches on the sleeves of the 2003 black shirt.

The number-22 shirt above was issued to Ian Walker, an unused substitute for the game. It is part of Richard Clarke's 'Three Lions - England Match Worn Shirts' Facebook Collection.
