This blue version of the zig-zag style introduced the previous year, replaced the green uniform as first-choice, the first time that a blue jersey had been chosen. It was worn in all games over a seven-month period, except when England played a team wearing blue shirts.

Like the green version, the columns of light and dark blues were positioned differently from game to game so that every jersey was subtly different.

Peter Shilton broke England's appearance record against Denmark, wearing this kit on the occasion of his 109th cap.

The photo of the shirt at the top of the page was provided to us by Simon Shakeshaft, curator of the National Football Shirt Collection. Check out the England Match Shirts website for more England shirts from the Neville Evans Collection.
