World Cup 2018: Commiserate England’s loss and relive the glory days with these retro football shirts

Relive the glory days of 1966 and 1990 and score a style hat-trick

Retro England Football kits

Unfortuntely England lost to Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, and while we're still proud of Southgate's boys, maybe it's time to relive the glory days of 1966. 

You could buy Nike's official World Cup 2018 kit (opens in new tab), but at £90 it's expensive, and, quite frankly, not that stylish. What you need is a retro kit. You know, from back when people genuinely fancied England's chances.

3Retro (opens in new tab) has a number of vintage shirts on offer, allowing you to sport the three lions in style, with a plethora of retro styles available, dating all the way back to 1966 when, as you may be aware, England actually won a World Cup.

Patriotism aside, our style favourite is England 1996 European Championship Shirt (opens in new tab). It's bang on trend thanks to the current 90s ugly-style revival, and is actually quite reminiscent of this year's smash hit, Nigeria's 90s inspired jersey, albeit not quite so bold.

The shirt is meticulously researched to make sure it's as close to the original as possible. On the 1990 Away kit you'll find short sleeves, a button collar, and embroidered England badge.
