Top 5 International Retro Kits

In this day an age of colourful and somewhat expensive football kits, a retro shirt can seem very appealing, a classic look for a bargain price that will last you years. We are going to give you a run down of our favourite international retro shirts!

England 66 shirt

England 66

The highest point England have ever reached, the 1966 World Cup. Defeating West Germany in the final 4-2 after extra time, with Geoff Hurst netting a hat-trick. Many kit makers have tried to recapture the classic nature of this kit over the years, perhaps Umbro coming closest in 2010 but this will forever remain a classic for the pub while watching England.

Holland 74

Holland 74

The runners up of the 1974 World Cup, Holland won our hearts in the fashion department and footballing. Legends like Johan Cruyff, Wim Jansen and Ruud Krol showed us the totaalvoetbal which has been the blueprint for so many great footballing teams since such as Barcelona’s “tika-taka” approach. This shirt is a classic and Nike have even tried to replicate it at last years World Cup.

Italy 82 shirt

Italy 82

Italy were totally dominate at Espana 82, they won their third World Cup and showed the world just how good they were. Lead by the legendary Paolo Rossi who took home the Golden Boot and Golden Ball. Beating Argentina, Brazil, Poland and West Germany in style. We kind of wish the Italians kept wearing these instead of the latest skin tight numbers, much more classy.
