1970s Football Shirt Shop

Mexico arrived to the 1978 World Cup with a very young team full of promise and very high expectations. Everyone knew the "Green Angels", as the team was known, was to make a decent or even spectacular Cup. But the failure came right from the start, when in the first game, Mexico was defeated by the then thought "weak" Tunisia squad, 3 goals to 1. The Mexican team’s spirit went down, as they lost their two other games against Germany (0-6) and Poland (1-3). The story of the "Green Angels" is one of the darkest in Mexican World Cup history.

Growing up in the 70's you were forced to pick a football team very early on and schooldays were made up of ribbing your mates if your team beat theirs so you always picked the top teams and not necessarily the local team (Leyton Orient weren't noted for their first division presence) to avoid the abuse if your team lost.

It's with regard to these memories that I'm exceptionally pleased to tell you that we've teamed up with the UK's leading online retro football shirt merchant to bring you all the old retro football shirts our heroes used to wear whilst we watched them on the terraces or on "The Big Match" .
