Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Whitley during the 2006 World Cup Qualification Group 6 match against England, played at Old Trafford in Manchester on 26th March 2005. The match was a bad day at the office for the Green and White Army they had kept the hosts at bay in the first half but then conceded two goals in quick succession to Joe Cole and Michael Owen just after break. An unfortunate Chris Baird own goal just minutes after Owen's strike made it 3-0 before a deflected Frank Lampard shot made it 4-0 adding insult to injury. Whitley started the match and came off for Andy Kirk with two minutes left to play, the former Manchester City man earned 20 caps for his national side between 1997-2005 scoring 3 goals.
