The classic plain red shirt, white shorts and red socks will forever be associated with a certain afternoon in July at Wembley in 1966, when an epic encounter with West Germany was etched into the nation's history. 

This Umbro away kit was worn between July 1966 to May 1972. I’m wearing #6, as was worn by the late, great Bobby Moore, who made 108 appearances for England over the course of 12 years. 

It'll always be remembered for the 4-2 win in the 1966 World Cup Finals in England: the only time England have lifted the cup ... so far! 

Today's schedule: 
Group E: Brazil v Costa Rica
Group D: Nigeria v Iceland
Group E: Serbia v Switzerland

Will Brazil get over their hiccup against Switzerland? And will Iceland get a win against Nigeria, taking one step closer to progressing to the knock out stages?
