This purple kit (officially aubergine) was released on 6 February 2007 alongside England's new home kit. Aside from the colour, it was the immediately striking all-white crest that stood it apart from its contemporaries.

On the field, it was the outfit that saw England return to the national stadium at Wembley, amidst a faltering European Championship qualification campaign and it was a night in Moscow on a synthetic pitch that signalled the end of Paul Robinson's reign as first-choice 'keeper. He was blamed for Russia's winning goal and never played for England again.
