FIFA World Cup 1970 Group 3
England, the defending world champions arrived in Mexico with a team that was arguably better than in 1966. Alf Ramsey (now a knight) commissioned special aertex kits to combat the heat and the team wore white rather than navy shorts in the believe these would absorb less heat from the sun. Brazil were led by Carlos Alberto and included Pelé, Clodoaldo, Gérson, Jairzinho, Rivelino, and Tostão, all world class players. They arrived with two sets of shirts, one made by a domestic supplier, Athleta, the other by Umbro. These were indistinguishable except for the design of the numbers on the back. Both sets appeared in the same matches as players often changed into a fresh shirt at half time.
