This black, or dark grey jersey, was introduced just four days after an all-blue uniform of exactly the same design was launched.  It was to be used initially as a second-choice jersey when England met opponents in blue shirts and was worn with blue shorts and socks from the first-choice uniform.  Because the two jerseys were of a similar dark colour, it was not immediately apparent that there were, in fact, two distinct jerseys, so our thanks to Mark Allen for pointing this out to us.

For the jersey's final appearance, against Sweden, the match details and numbering on the shirt changed to gold and it was paired with black shorts and socks, for the one and only time.

England wore the FIFA WORLD CUP GERMANY 2006 logo, heat-pressed onto the upper right arm, for the two World Cup fixtures, against Azerbaijan and Sweden.
