We have still to determine the colour of the numbers worn by England in most of the games in the early 1960s, so games for which we do not know the colour have been grouped with those in the same period where we do know the colour (e.g. we know that they wore blue numbers against Northern Ireland and Scotland in 1960-61). The last instances of blue numbers for this period, found to date, have been in June 1963.

22 a double-digit number in the bottom right corner of a Shirts colour cell indicates that squad numbers higher than 11 were worn by outfield players at the start of the match (the number is the highest allocated number in the squad).

1 in the top left corner of a Shirts colour cell indicates games where England wore the 'World Cup' font, the only difference being that the number one was not a simple rectangular bar, as it was in the other games.
