This Umbro shirt is the red away version of the lightweight v-necked home white shirt that made its debut in the 1954-55 season. We believe that the numbers on the back of the shirt were blue for the first game, orange for the second and white for the last two. Initially, the socks were red, with white turnovers.

With few opportunities to wear change kits, it was worn on only four occasions over a period of eleven years, though England did also wear a blue shirt in 1959 and then wore Bukta red shirts between 1962-64, before returning to Umbro, the following year. At Wembley in 1954, a scroll with the opponents' name (GERMANY) and the year were displayed underneath the emblem. The shirt above was worn by Jeff Hall in Berlin, in 1956.
