In the first of our International retro football shirts to celebrate the upcoming London Olympics, we take a look at some Uruguay retro shirts from the past.

Uruguay 1930 World Cup Final Shirt

The first World Cup ever was held in Uruguay, in 1930, and due to the fact that there were few European teams participating mainly because of difficulties travelling to South America, the host nation actually won the competition.

These Uruguay 1930 World Cup Final shirts are Royal blue in colour made from drill cotton with long sleeves and a white collar.

Uruguay 1950 World Cup Final

The 1950 FIFA World Cup, which was held in Brazil, saw Uruguay win their second World Cup. The competition marked the 25th anniversary of Rimet’s presidency of FIFA and so it was the first tournament where the trophy was referred to as the Jules Rimet Cup.

The victory by the Celestes (the Sky Blues) over Brazil in the final ranks as one of the greatest upsets of all time in football. The Sky Blue coloured shirt is made form 100% cotton and has short sleeves.

What with the London Olympics nearly upon us and the chance to see a Great Britain football team play together for the first time since 1960 in the Olympic games, we thought it would be a good idea to have a look at Great Britain football shirts from the past.

1947 Great Britain Shirt

The first retro Great Britain shirt comes from 1947 and was originally worn in a game that was descibed as “The Match of the Century”.

The blue strip was worn in against a Fifa XI at Hampden Park, in front of 135,000 supporters and Great Britain won the match 6-1.

1955 Great Britain Shirt

The next Great Britain retro shirt was worn eight years later, in 1955 against a European XI, and consists of a green and white short sleeved jersey.

The match was arranged to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Irish FA and was played at Windsor Park, in front of 58,000 spectators.

1960 Great Britain Olympics Shirt

The last of the retro Great Britain shirts we are looking at also happens to be the last time that Great Britain fielded a side in the Olympic Games, and that was in Rome, in 1960.

The tournament was not a good one for Team GB, in Rome, but the 1960′s retro shirt certainly was. A classic white shirt with a Union Jack badge on the chest; simple and timeless!

England Euro 1996 Shirt

Vintage England Football Shirt

By far the most exciting European Championships for England was on home soil in the guise of Euro 96. A superb side, which included the strike partnership of Shearer and Sheringham up front got us to the semi-finals, which we of course lost on penalties to Germany, just as we had done six years before.

However, England’s great run in the competition did include a 4-1 thrashing of highly fancied Holland that was dubbed “Total Football” by many pundits.

This England retro football shirts commemorate the competition and in particular Shearer and the thirty goals he scored in his 63 caps playing for his country. This really is an awesome looking England retro shirt.

Retro England ShirtsEngland 1990 World Cup shirt

Apart from the World Cup winning shirt of 1966, the most iconic image of all England retro football shirts, must be Gazza crying in the semi-final after he had received a needless booking and knew that whatever happened he would miss the final.

Nevertheless, for those that remember the day, this was the proudest achievement of any England football team, barring out 1966 heroes, and these are vintage England football shirts that you can wear with pride!

The England 1990 Gazza shirt comes pre-numbered with a number 19, as worn by Paul Gascoigne in the 1990 World Cup final and is a must have England retro football shirt for any fan of that generation.

Gordon Banks is considered by many to be the greatest ever English keeper. In fact, in a poll carried out by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS), Banks was voted in as the second best goalkeeper of the 20th Century, behind Lev Yashin in 1st Place and in front of Dino Zoff in 3rd.

Such was Banks prowess between the sticks that a popular phrase in the English language was slightly changed in his honour to “Safe as the Banks of England.”

Johan Cruyff was the star in the “Total Football” Holland side, in the seventies. Although a striker, he felt equally at home in midfield or on the wings, where he would inevitably perform an amazing piece of skill that became commonly known as the “Cruyff Turn”.

Cruyff began his club career at Ajax, but having been voted European Player of the year for the 2nd time in 1973, he moved to Barcelona for what was then a world record fee of £922,300. At this time, he was considered by many to be the best player in the world.

Throughout his career, Cruyff played for a number of great sides, but below are perhaps his most iconic shirts. As well as the various Holland football shirts he appeared in, is of course his Barcelona retro shirts, which are unsurprisingly very popular.

However, our personal favourite is the the Dutch football shirt from the seventies, which will forever be synonymous with the legend that is Johan Cruyff.
