Navy blue shorts, with red drawstring, cut to a v-shape at the bottom of each seam. Thin white line running from waistband down each seam, curving to a point, before turning back upwards to form a v-shape and then ending. Two conjoined white diamonds within v-shaped line.

White socks. Navy blue diamonds across reverse of tops, with a navy blue hoop underneath. Two large navy blue concentric diamonds on calf. Emblem on shin, underneath the Umbro logo, with 'ENGLAND' in capitalised white lettering inside a navy blue panel above the emblem. Thin navy blue line running around edge of soles.

England's captain, wore a red armband, with the fixture, the name of the stadium and the date, all printed on it in white, with the emblem also on it.

Variations
  • A long-sleeved version of the shirt was also worn. There were no distinguishing features on the lower sleeves.

  • The shirts worn by the Neville brothers also included their first initial i.e. G. NEVILLE and P. NEVILLE.

  • Apart from the first five games in which this shirt was worn, Ashley, Carlton and Joe Cole all wore shirts that included their first initial i.e. A. COLE, C. COLE and J. COLE.

  • For the seven European Championship qualifying fixtures, England had the UEFA EURO 2008 logo embroidered onto the upper right sleeve, below the Umbro logo.

  • Against Brazil, a commemorative Wembley logo (incorporating the venue, the date, the emblem and the Brazilian flag) was embroidered onto the upper right sleeve.

  • For the three World Cup qualifying fixtures, England had the SOUTH AFRICA 2010 WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS logo embroidered onto the upper right sleeve, below the Umbro logo.

  • The names of England's opponents, as they appeared in the match details, were ANDORRA, AUSTRIA, BELARUS, BRAZIL, CROATIA, CZECH REPUBLIC, ESTONIA, GERMANY, ISRAEL, KAZAKHSTAN, RUSSIA, SPAIN and USA. England were named first in the ten home fixtures and second in the seven away games.

  • England wore all white in six of the games (against Andorra, Croatia and Spain away, and at home to Estonia, Croatia and Kazakhstan). An alternative pair of white shorts was worn, with red drawstring and the following design details:

    • Cut to a v-shape at the bottom of each seam. Thin navy blue line running from waistband down each seam, curving to a point, before turning back upwards to form a v-shape and then ending. Two conjoined navy blue diamonds within v-shaped line. Two embroidered navy blue concentric diamonds on left thigh. Navy blue mesh number, in the same font as on the shirt, above the Umbro logo on left thigh. Embroidered emblem on right thigh, with 'ENGLAND' in capitalised white lettering inside a navy blue panel above the emblem.

Most Appearances

14 - Gareth Barry (4 sub), Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard (3 sub)

  • 44 players wore this shirt.

  • Of the three players making 14 appearances in the shirt, Gerrard spent the longest time on the pitch.

  • 7 players made their international debuts in the shirt. For Joey Barton and David Nugent, their England careers each lasted a mere eleven minutes (plus added time), though Nugent did, at least, manage to get his name on the scoresheet.

  • Of the shirt's debutants, Ashley Young went on to win 30 caps, and Joleon Lescott, 26.

  • 12 players made their last international appearance in this shirt. For Gary Neville, it was his 85th, on the shirt's debut. Sol Campbell made a brief international comeback before winning his 73rd and final cap in the defeat to Croatia. The elder Neville brother (Phil) also ended his England career in the shirt, winning his 59th cap, eight months after Gary's last appearance.

Top Scorers

7 - Wayne Rooney

4 - Steven Gerrard

3 - Michael Owen, Theo Walcott

  • Rooney's seven goals were scored in nine games.

  • Owen's three goals were his last for England, taking him to a grand total of forty and putting him fourth in the all-time list of leading goalscorers.

  • Walcott's three were his first for England and all came in a hat-trick against Croatia. He did not score his fourth until the 2012 European Championship, four years later.

  • Four other players scored their first international goal in this shirt, but only one managed to add to their tally. Rio Ferdinand had claimed a goal at the 2002 World Cup, but it was diverted into the net by the Danish goalkeeper. There could be no denying his assured finish against Russia at Wembley, five years later, however, or his header against Kazakhstan in 2008.

Captains

10 - John Terry

5 - Steven Gerrard

2 - Rio Ferdinand

  • Terry was Steve McLaren's choice as captain, with Gerrard taking the armband when Terry was injured.

  • When Fabio Capello became coach, he finally settled on Terry as his captain, with Ferdinand deputising when Terry was injured.

  • None of the three were captain for the first or last time in this shirt.

 

This kit was fairly unremarkable, being broadly similar to its predecessor, and due to it never being worn in a major tournament, it has struggled to stay in the memory.

It was launched at the beginning of 2007, in the midst of England's ultimately unsuccessful attempt to qualify for the European Championship in Austria and Switzerland, a failure that cost Steve McClaren his job as coach.

Umbro proudly proclaimed that the shirt was their most hi-tech yet, using a special fabric called Trilogy, to control the microclimate between the skin and the shirt. It drew sweat away from the skin and included tiny pores to help heat escape, so that the players stayed cool and dry in the heat of the action.

Unfortunately, the action never really became heated. England suffered damaging defeats; to Russia, in the cool of Moscow, and to Croatia, on a very soggy evening at Wembley.

The kit was also on duty for England's long-awaited return to Wembley and the new national stadium, though Brazil and, inevitably, Germany prevented it from becoming a victorious return. Fabio Capello took up the reins to try to put England back on track and he got off to a flying start, with England swiftly gaining revenge against Croatia with a stunning 4-1 win in Zagreb. The World Cup in South Africa was the goal, though the shirt's farewell was a sobering defeat in Sevilla against the European and, soon to be, World Champions.
