my favourite england shirt

let's face it. england have had some shocking football shirts over the years.

it went downhill after the 1974 world cup qualifiers.
until then the shirts had been the same plain classics that the team
had worn since before the 1966 world cup.
all white shirts with round neck at home.

and red with round necks as second choice shirt

for the world cup in mexico in 1970 england introduced a new
third choice shirt... pale blue.
they only ever wore it once, for the group match against czechoslovakia. 

it's the only england shirt i've ever bought... umbro re-issued it
in 2002 in limited numbers and it's made from an airtex material
which was supposed to help keep the players cool in the mexican heat.
seeing as there is no point in wearing my wales shirt,
this is the top i'll be sporting during the world cup.
