This is a much sought-after shirt, due to it being worn, notoriously, in England's shocking 1-0 defeat to the USA in the 1950 World Cup.

It was short-sleeved and had red numbers, and was worn with white shorts and the black socks normally worn with the white kit, with white turnovers.

The photo above is of the shirt being worn by Sir Stanley Matthews in the 1950 F.A. Charity Shield at Stamford Bridge, a game which pitted two different F.A. XIs against each other. The England B team had worn red change shirts against Switzerland since the war, but had also worn blue against them at the beginning of 1950.
