My second favourite football shirt – Peru 1978 World Cup


Actually, the Peruvian National strip doesn’t change that much, but this one (see above)from 1978 is a classic, a really bold statement. They had a reasonable World Cup in 1978 as well, getting through the first round as winners of their group, beating the likes of Scotland (who had a miserable campaign);

but then not doing so well in the following group stage. Still, they had a memorable, stylish shirt to wear. Read about the Peruvian National Football team here;

The ‘Old Fashioned Football Shirt Company’, Toffs, do a reproduction of the Peru shirt from 1978;
