Description    
White short-sleeved shirt, with small overlapping v-neck adjoining a white rectangular insert, and a pattern of tiny crosses in red, blue, green and purple across the shoulders, Large embroidered emblem on left breast, alongside neck insert. Embroidered white star above the emblem. Lower-case 'v' in red (for home games) and blue (for games played away from home) below the emblem. A white scroll, outlined in blue, below the 'v', with the opponent's name in capitalised blue lettering within it, and the year in red (for home games) and blue (for away games) below the scroll. Two embroidered blue concentric diamonds on right breast, alongside neck insert. Blue number, bordered in a lighter blue on reverse and on right breast below the Umbro logo. Surname in capitalised blue lettering above number on reverse, in same font as the numbers.

Blue shorts, with blue drawstring. Plain white number on left thigh in same font as on shirt, with two white concentric diamonds underneath. Embroidered emblem on right thigh.

White socks, with blue tops, toes and heels.

In the five friendly games, England's captain wore a red armband with the emblem, a lower-case 'v' in white below the emblem, a white scroll, outlined in blue, below the 'v', with the opponent's name in capitalised blue lettering within it and the year in white below the scroll. The armbands worn in the European Championship qualification fixtures were blue and featured the UNITE AGAINST RACISM logo.

Variations
  • A long-sleeved version of the shirt was also worn, though a number of players wore a white base layer underneath, instead. There were no distinguishing features on the lower sleeves.

  • The shirts worn by Ashley Cole, and Adam and Glen Johnson also included their first initial i.e. A. COLE, A. JOHNSON and G. JOHNSON.

  • For the six European Championship qualifying fixtures, England had logos embroidered onto the upper sleeves. The UEFA EURO 2012 QUALIFIERS logo was on the right arm and the UEFA RESPECT logo was on the left arm.

  • The names of England's opponents, as they appeared in the scrolls, were BULGARIA, DENMARK, FRANCE, GHANA, MONTENEGRO, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND and WALES.

Most Appearances

10 - James Milner (2 sub)

9 - Gareth Barry (2 sub)

8 - Ashley Cole, Glen Johnson, Ashley Young (4 sub)

  • 39 players wore this shirt.

  • 10 players won their first cap in the shirt. For three of them, it was their only international appearance, but Gary Cahill went on to appear 61 times for England.

  • 7 other players appeared in an England shirt for the last time, with Rio Ferdinand bowing out after 81 full internationals.

Top Scorers

3 - Darren Bent, Jermain Defoe, Frank Lampard (2 pens.), Ashley Young

  • Defoe's goals all came in a hat-trick against Bulgaria on this shirt's first appearance.

  • 4 players scored their first goal for England in this shirt, with Ashley Young going on to hit seven.

  • Peter Crouch's remarkable England scoring record ended when he came on as a substitute for his 42nd and last appearance, in the 84th minute against France and scored within two minutes, his 22nd and last international goal.

Captains

4 - John Terry

2 - Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard

1 - Gareth Barry

  • Capello used five captains in eleven games. His original choice (Ferdinand) made his last international appearance in this shirt, but it was Terry who was selected as his last skipper and it was a decision that would ultimately lead to Capello's departure from the coach's position, following Terry's 34th and last match as captain.

  • Barry and Lampard both captained England for the first time. For Barry, it was a once-only honour.

 

Following a decade of releasing a new white kit every other year, England suddenly introduced a new one for the first competitive fixture of the 2010-11 season, only 17 months after the previous white kit had been launched.

With most English clubs now changing their home kits every season, it appeared that the national team was intent on following suit, which was a shame, because the shirt it replaced had been the most popular England shirt for some time.

However, the retro-minimalist theme continued with a shirt designed by Peter Saville. At first glance, it appeared that the only difference was the replacement of the old-style collar with a square collar and more open neckline, but closer inspection revealed a pattern of tiny St. George crosses in red, blue, green and purple across the shoulders, although, as many pointed out, they could not be St. George crosses if they were not red. They symbolised the multi-cultural society of England.

After following the trend of other nations switching to a single colour for the entire kit, England now switched back to blue shorts, though this time in royal blue, a shade not seen since the Admiral days of the early 1980s. The royal-blue theme continued with the tops of the socks, whilst the names and numbers, and the Umbro logo on the shirt, which had previously been red, were also switched to royal blue. The Under-20 and Under-21 teams each, on occasions, wore a matching pair of white shorts (with white drawstring, plain blue number on left thigh, with Umbro logo underneath and emblem on right thigh) turning it into an all-white kit.

Due to the new-kit cycle speeding up, this outfit was used for the European Championship qualifying campaign, but did not see the tournament itself, when England appeared in Ukraine, back again in all white. The period also brought to an end the reign of Fabio Capello, but that decision would not be made until three months after the kit was worn for the last time. He did, at least, sign off with England having completed 2011 without defeat, culminating in morale-boosting victories against the World and European Champions, Spain, and, for the first time since 1968, Sweden.
