Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Narazaki for the friendly match against England, played at the City of Manchester Stadium on 1st June 2004. This was only the second ever meeting between the sides with the Three Lions running out 2-1 winners at Wembley way back in 1995. A close game saw the hosts take the lead through a close range Michael Owen follow up on 22 minutes. Japan hit back shortly after the break thanks to Feyenoord star Shinji Ono as both sides settled for a share of the bragging rights - final score 1-1. Narazaki played the full match inbetween the sticks, the shot-stopper earned a well deserved 77 caps for the Samurai Blue between 1998-2010 and spent his entire club career in Japan including a superb 20 seasons with Nagoya Grampus Eight.
