This rarely-used kit had a high-profile introduction in England's opening match of the 2002 World Cup (one of three goalkeeping outfits worn during the tournament), but it only appeared twice more. Its second airing was almost two and a half years later, and its final appearance was a further year after that.

The preference for blue and black goalkeeping jerseys at this time led to the longevity of this kit as an occasional third-choice and it appeared alongside three successive outfield home kits.

The jersey in the photos above was issued to David Seaman for the game with Sweden (right). 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). The World Cup logo was embroidered onto the right sleeve.
