This was England's first all-black kit, though it was worn with white socks on its first outing.

It was also the first goalkeeper's kit to feature the match details embroidered onto the chest. Then, in the 2002 World Cup final tournament, it was one of three goalkeeping kits to be worn, each of which had the 2002 FIFA WORLD CUP KOREA JAPAN logo embroidered onto the right sleeve.

The jersey in the photos above was issued to Nigel Martyn for England's crucial World Cup qualifier against Greece at Old Trafford. It appears here by kind permission of the National Football Shirt Collection (England Match Shirts), also part of the Neville Evans Collection (curator Simon Shakeshaft).
