  1. I remember also Colombia’s Oscar Cordoba (in the matches against Switzerland and Romania, https://c7.alamy.com/compit/hnr862/oscar-cordoba-colombia-28-febbraio-1996-hnr862.jpg) and Bolivia’s Carlos Trucco (in the match against Spain, https://www.worldcupsaga.com/public/1994/carlos-trucco-maillot.png) wearing the grey version at the 1994 World Cup and Pagliuca in the 1994-95 season wearing a blue version of this shirt while he played for Inter https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/d/d0/Gianluca_Pagliuca%2C_Inter_1994-95.JPG.

  2. On Cordoba’s and Trucco’s kits both the jersey and the shorts have Umbro wording rather than the logo and no logo on the collar. Also Trucco appears to have cut the collar open.

    1. Chelsea used the yellow “Woods” style shirt in 1994-95 as the second GK shirt (with Coors sponsorship). The grey design appeared on the pre season photo with the Coors logo but was never used in a competitive first team game. The new home GK shirt was a green and purple number, also used by Man City.

  3. I also remember that in the 1994 FIFA World Cup, during the match Saudi Arabia vs Morocco, Mohammed Al-Deayea wore the black “Woods” model with black tracksuit trousers.

  4. At the end of the 1994 World Cup final when everyone ran on the pitch, one of the unused Brazil goalkeepers was wearing dark green trousers with the same all over print as the shirt. I have no idea if this was just a tracksuit or if he would have worn them in a match had he been brought on.

  5. Tommy Wright wore the grey jersey for Northern Ireland against the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualifier in 1993.

    The shirt had the badge centered on a shield, but the shorts were a plain, older style with no shield behind the badge.

  6. Pretty sure it was the same season Celtic had a purple version of the green Man United GK top 92/93 or around then
