shirt came from Joe Corrigan's collection and it is believed that it was
issued to him for the 1982 World Cup. The lack of an Admiral logo supports
the theory that the FA were initially under the impression that England were
not allowed to wear manufacturers' logos on their kit.
this is the third such shirt to have emerged, alongside the
yellow that was
worn in every game by Peter Shilton and the
blue that was later
worn on the Australian tour in the following year. All are believed to
have been issued for the tournament, as we have seen all three without an
Admiral logo, but it is a little surprising that the FA saw fit to issue
three alternative goalkeeping shirts for the tournament. We had not known of
this red alternative until it emerged in 2014.
