Variations
  • In the three games played in the World Cup, England had a full-colour FIFA WORLD CUP GERMANY 2006 logo heat-pressed onto the upper right sleeve.

  • For the last three matches in which this shirt was worn, England had the UEFA EURO 2008 logo heat-pressed onto the upper right sleeve.

  • David James wore number 13 against Jamaica.

  • The names of England's opponents, as they appeared in the match details, were ANDORRA, ECUADOR, HUNGARY, JAMAICA, MACEDONIA, PORTUGAL, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO and URUGUAY. England were named first in all but the game in Macedonia, where they were named second.

Appearances

8.5 - Paul Robinson

0.5 - David James

Clean Sheets

6.5 - Paul Robinson

0.5 - David James

  • England conceded only two goals in the five games played in the World Cup tournament, neither of which were when wearing this kit.

Penalties Conceded

Paul Robinson (three in a shootout)

  • For the second successive tournament, England lost to Portugal in the quarter-final on the dreaded spot kicks.

Penalties Missed

Paul Robinson (two in a shootout)

  • England lost, despite Viana hitting the post with Portugal's second kick and Robinson glancing their next kick, from Petit, onto the post.

 

Although this kit was launched alongside England's red change kit, prior to the 2006 World Cup, it became the first choice outfit for seven months.

Paul Robinson continued to dominate the position, in all games, apart from a second-half cameo from David James against Jamaica, with England already four goals to the good.
