Italia ‘90 is remembered as one of the best tournaments, and that was especially true for England fans. A young Gazza had the world at his feet and helped inspire England to their first World Cup semi-finals since the glory of 1966. Arguably the main success story, though, was New Order’s World in Motion, which had arrived just before the tournament started and featured the now-iconic rap from John Barnes.

Throughout the video, New Order frontman Bernard Sumner wore England’s light blue third shirt. The jersey’s tonal diamond pattern and musical heritage cemented it as a cult classic, even if the England team rarely wore it

Brought back from the archives, this men's England '90 World Cup Training Retro Shirt is a replica of the shirt the team wore in preparation for the 1990 World Cup. In a blue and white patterned colourway, the lightweight jersey features a spread collar, single-button fastening and short sleeves with striped trim. The retro shirt is finished with the iconic England logo embroidered to the chest.
