This black, or dark grey shirt, was introduced just four days after an all-blue uniform of exactly the same design was launched.  It was to be used initially as a second-choice top when England met opponents in blue shirts and was worn with the blue shorts and socks from the first-choice kit. Because the two shirts were of a similar dark colour, it was not immediately apparent that there were, in fact, two distinct shirts, so our thanks to Mark Allen for pointing this out to us.

For its final appearance, against Sweden, the match details and numbering on the shirt changed to gold to match the red kit that it was worn with and it was paired with black shorts and socks, for the one and only time.
