This Umbro away kit was worn between rieJune 1997 to June 1999, and featured in the 1998 World Cup Finals in France. 
It was only worn once during the World Cup Finals against Colombia, winning 2-0 in the group stage. David Beckham scored a 30-yard free kick in the 29th minute. I can still remember watching that goal go in so vividly ... such a great feeling watching your childhood heroes live up to their hype.

I’m wearing #20 as worn by Michael Owen during the finals, who made 80 appearances for England, captaining the team 8 times, and scoring 40 goals.

Today's schedule: 
Group H: Japan v Poland
Group H: Senegal v Colombia
Group G: Panama v Tunisia
Group G: England v Belgium

The game of the day has to be England v Belgium. Whoever wins this game tops the table. Or if England manage to grab a draw, we'll finish top as long as we have less cards than Belgium. Weirdly enough, it looks like whoever finishes 2nd may have an easier run to the semi-finals, but hopefully the team go out hard against Belgium and let's just see what happens.
