As the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia comes to a close, it is time to reminisce and look back at the best football moments throughout World Cup History. Since its inaugural tournament in 1930, the FIFA World Cup has become the most widely viewed sports championship in the world, with an even larger television audience than the Olympic Games. This of course, has sparked interest from many fans around the world, who can be seen proudly donning the shirts of their teams. As football fans are becoming more and more widespread, debates regarding the best players, shirts and moments have emerged. Football shirts serve as an integral part of the spirit of the game, and often set reminders for the best moments this sport has to offer.
Football shirts, especially vintage shirts, have become a heavy commodity in the market. Discussions surrounding the top football shirts have been a hot topic for quite some time. Fortunately, The Idle Man has released a ‘Top 50 Best World Cup Football Shirts’ list that will hopefully put this debate to rest. According to The Idle Man, their list was created after carefully analyzing each shirt’s history, alongside the overall designs. The Idle Man team, consisting of 14 football enthusiasts, sat down to choose the top 50 shirts which they believed were the most iconic.
The list itself is interactive which allows you to read up on every shirt’s story. Upon selecting a shirt, you will be introduced to the country’s team in that particular year and reason behind its spot on the list.
Football shirts are more than just pieces of clothing; these shirts can often define an entire nation. The colours, along with the memories are cherished by the fans and act as mementos. Football is truly a beautiful sport where experiences transcend the 90 minutes on the field.
