The classic image of plain red shirts, white shorts and red socks is forever associated with a certain July afternoon at Wembley in 1966 when an epic encounter with West Germany was etched into the nation's memory.

This kit incorporated England's first crew-neck red shirt and  established itself as the second choice outfit in the wake of the national team's finest hour.

In 1970 and 1974, a short-sleeved version appeared in Aertex material to help the players cope with games played in hot climates, but the World Cup-winning long sleeves made two farewell appearances in the 1971-72 season in England's European Championship campaign, fittingly bowing out in West Germany.

The number-six shirt pictured above was worn by the late, great Bobby Moore, sadly, not in THAT game, but against Austria in 1967. Nevertheless, it is a magnificent link to a unique moment in English football history and an essential part of the National Football Shirt Collection at the England Match Shirts website (curator Simon Shakeshaft).
