..a form of double-take deception was played on two leading Czechoslovak representatives who went to Basle to spy. All the England players wore a mixture of numbers on their shirts to confuse the East European observers....It is a ploy used by Mr Revie once before when Leeds United played Juventus. Designed to put the opposition off their stroke at the beginning of a match. - George Green
