Welcome to the 3rd edition of Let’s Talk Sport’s ‘World Cup Wednesday’. With 2014 going into April it is nearly 2 months to go until Brazil hosts the biggest competition in the beautiful game.

Above, is the brand new home and away kit the England national team will be wearing at this summer’s world cup in Brazil.

The full kit was announced earlier in the week by Nike (being the official kit supplier since taking over Umbro) with the pictures of big stars such as Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and so on wearing the team wear.

The news has been negative with responses of the announced price being at around £90 for the England fans to pay for the merchandise.

There has been a lot of anger from football fans all over the social media side such as Facebook and Twitter, with many questionable comments of why it’s not at a normal price of around £40?

Who knows?

So, in this week’s edition I look back at memorable England kits at the world cup.

 

World Cup 2002 (South Korea & Japan)

We go back 12 years in 2002 with the 17th edition of the global tournament being shared by South Korea and Japan.

Before the stage began, England had a strong squad that looked to go far with the likes of younger talent like David Beckham, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard representing the nation.

As always, the shirt was white with the second option being red. The home kit was reasonably remembered for the red strip going down on the right hand side of the top referencing the St George’s cross.

Below is Michael Owen’s opening goal against Brazil in the quarter finals before the glory was soon after spoilt no thanks to Rivaldo and Ronaldo.

 

 

World Cup 1990 (Italia ’90)

Italia 90 was certainly a heart breaking world cup for the English side, as the squad managed by Bobby Robson were contenders to lift the golden trophy.

It was to be Peter Shilton’s last world cup campaign as the former England goalkeeper retired after the competition at the incredible age of 41.

The shirt had the very memorable old fashioned style of the Umbro logos shaded all around the shirt with a black collar.

It is certainly a shirt to remember for the wrong reasons, especially if you were one of the spectators that witnessed Chris Waddle miss the crucial penalty to miss out on the world cup final.

 

World Cup 1966 (England)

I think many can agree with me saying that England’s 1966 kit is the unforgettable one out of all the nations’ team wear.

England’s best world cup performance in front of their home fans at the old Wembley stadium in 1966 overcoming the mighty West Germans 4 goals to 2 after extra time.

A hat-trick and a half performance by former West Ham United and Stoke City forward, Geoff Hurst, and an extra goal by Martin Peters highlighted the most successful and memorable day in English football history.

The team were wearing red shirt and a pair of white shorts with the classic England badge on the heart of each footballer. The best kit you could ask for and you can still buy replicas in stores and online to show your patriotism.

Relive the moment England won the biggest prize in the world of football by watching the highlights below, you know you want to.

 

In conclusion to this week’s ‘World Cup Wednesday’, England’s football kit for this summer’s world cup in Brazil looks plain and simple and makes most people question the sport
