Made by Umbro in their ‘Tailored by Umbro in England’ range of shirts which they introduced in 2009; this shirt provides excellent dimensions for a size small football shirt.


Although the 2009-10 home shirt may have represented a move away from the designs associated with the era of the 2000’s – Umbro made sure a classic red and white away strip would drape ‘The Three Lions’ as the new decade of the 2010’s was ushered in. Unlike the home shirt, the away strip used a standard white hoop collar, while white bands adorned the sleeves to create fine shirt that was stylish enough for the modern era while as classy as any to rival its predecessors. This cycle would also be the last time an England shirt would be pulled on the by the likes of: Ledley King, Jamie Carragher, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Emile Heskey, Joe Cole and David Beckham as he played his 115th and final cap against Belarus on 14th October 2009. Unfortunately, the 2009-10 cycle would be synonymous with England’s disappointing World Cup in 2010; there was however England’s incredible qualifying campaign for that World Cup which fans can look back on with great fondness – including an impressive 5-1 win over Croatia on 9th September 2009. The red away shirt would debut in the 3rd March 2010 friendly against Egypt where England won 3-1 and would also be worn at the World Cup in the matches against Slovenia and Germany.


Fabio Capello would enjoy an excellent first year in charge of England with just two defeats in his eleven games so far at the helm coming in friendly matches against France and Spain; more importantly, his England side was 100% in the win column in qualification the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa following wins over – Andorra, Kazakhstan, Belarus and crucially, Croatia. The year of 2008 would end with a fine win over Germany in Berlin.

After the defeat to Spain on 11th February 2009, England came together again on 28th March to host Slovakia in a friendly at Wembley Stadium where they cruised to a 4-0 win before securing a late 2-1 win over Ukraine three days later to keep their 100% win rate intact in World Cup qualifying.

‘The Three Lions’ imperious form in qualification continued in the June internationals when they beat Kazakhstan and Andorra by 4-0 and 6-0 scorelines respectively to all but seal passage to South Africa in twelve months’ time. The Netherlands threatened to derail England’s momentum in their 12th August friendly in Amsterdam when they went 2-0 ahead, however, Jermain Defoe’s brace (his third brace for England under Capello’s management) ensured the two nations would play their fourth consecutive draw since 2002.

The World Cup qualifiers in September 2009 would confirm England’s dominance of Group 6 when they saw off Slovenia 2-1 and then on 9th September – twenty two months on from their ignominious failure to reach Euro 2008; England would beat Croatia 5-1 at Wembley Stadium. Furthermore, in an ironic twist of fate - Ukraine beat England in their final qualifying game on 10th October – Croatia were denied a place in the play-off to reach the World Cup.

England however, would finish their qualifying campaign in 1st place with 9 wins and the sole defeat after they beat Belarus 3-0 in their last game of the group. This game would also end up being David Beckham’s last game in an England shirt. 2009 would end on a slightly disappointing note as they were beaten 1-0 by Brazil in a special attraction friendly match in Qatar on 14th November.

The decade of the 2010’s would begin for England against Egypt on 3rd March 2010 and they would start on a perfect note following a 3-1 win at Wembley. The national side would come together for their remaining pair friendlies to prepare for their curtain raiser at the World Cup against the United States of America on 12th June. Both fellow World Cup participants – Mexico and Japan would be overcome ahead of the meeting with the US in Rustenburg.

Steven Gerrard put England ahead after just 4 minutes however, a costly error from Robert Green would allow Clint Dempsey to score an equaliser and the two nations would have to share the spoils. Up next would be the challenge of Algeria who were participating in their first World Cup since 1986; and England would be held to a goalless draw amidst the backdrop of an ever-growing frustrated fan base which Wayne Rooney didn’t hold back voicing his opinion against during a post-match rant. England would nevertheless reach the Last 16 of the tournament when they defeated Slovenia 1-0, however, another unconvincing performance would see them finish in 2nd place.

The Last 16 would see old rivals reacquainted as England met Germany in their first meeting at a World Cup since their legendary semi-final in 1990. Germany would race into a 2-0 lead before Matthew Upson made it 2-1. Frank Lampard would controversially have his spectacular long-range effort ruled out as not having crossed the line, when replays showed that the ball appeared to be over the line. The tie would end up with Germany winning 4-1 on 27th June; concluding a very disappointing World Cup campaign.

With qualification for Euro 2012 to come in September – England began their post World Cup redemption by defeating Hungary 2-1 on 11th August at Wembley Stadium.
