The first branded kit that England wore lasted for six years from 1974 until 1980…
This Admiral creation, which horrified adults and delighted kids the nation over, was introduced for the Don Revie era and was not changed until just prior to the 1980 European Championships.
England played 44 games in this shirt, in contrast to the current England strip which was worn just 11 times and will be replaced by this new kit for the game against Holland next week.
Who knows how many games you will get for your money this time… we’re betting it’s not six years’ worth.
