How Admiral Revolutionised The Football Shirt - 80's Casual Classics

Shilton

 

Mills[lb]

Thompson

Butcher

Sansom[lb]

 

butch wilkins

Robbo😍

rix

 

Francis

Mariner

Woodcock

 

so had to be 4-3-3 or one of Francis/Woodcock played as a winger

Rix was a good LM but no winger so its really odd seeing this as I have no memory of the game and England would nearly always play with at least 1 sometimes 2 out and out wingers and defo a RB at RB 

IIRC Mills played the odd game at RB for Ipswich but no way he would be playing there for England they had some really good options then..must be a competition/ finals and RB was out injured/suspended

Remember that era growing up as a kid, England were shocking in the 80s, Spain 82 was rubbish, Mexico 86 should have been much better

italia 90 was my first trip to watch England as a 20 y/o great couple of weeks trying to outdrink the Irish and avoiding the police.

90 was the highlight of the world cups, euro 96 was brilliant though

found the game

 

https://www.national-football-teams.com/matches/report/15608/Spain_England.html

 

it was 82 a second group stage when there was another set of 3 team groups

 

group was very strong Spain Germany England ..both 0-0 games and out of the WC unbeaten

 

squad was this and had 2 really good RBs and  the brilliant S.Coppell had started all other games on RW

check out the crazy numbers dont recollect that either- Hoddle 9 Brooking 3 coppell 5

The game has moved on so much, look at the ages of the players

 

no teenagers at all
