Clean Sheets

3.5 - Paul Robinson

  

This all-blue outfit was introduced alongside England's 2005 home kit and only appeared for the duration of that year. The shorts and socks of the kit were also worn with a black shirt of the same design. In fact, because this shirt was dark navy, it was only when comparing the two, that it became apparent that they were, indeed, different shirts.

England put in some impressive performances in qualifying for the 2006 World Cup and Paul Robinson reinforced his standing as first-choice, especially when his predecessor, David James replaced him after a goalless first half in Denmark, before conceding four goals and then admitting that he hadn't prepared himself properly for his appearance.
