Twenty years ago, the World Cup in the USA brightened up television screens around the world - it was a time of blistering heat, surprise results... and eye-catching shirts.
For the Mexican team, it was one of their most memorable tournaments. Fresh from a Gold Cup win and a runners-up position in the Copa America, the team had qualified for USA '94, only to be placed in a 'Group of Death' alongside Ireland, Italy and Norway. Against the odds, the Mexican team won the group, only to fall at the second round in a penalty shoot out against Bulgaria. However, they had made their mark on the tournament thanks to some terrific displays on the pitch, and the eye-catching Umbro shirts they wore while doing so.
Mexico have qualified for every World Cup since USA '94 and now, twenty years on, the Umbro team in Mexico have recreated those iconic shirts to mark what was a special time for their national team.
The green home shirt originally featured the country's name in a vibrant aztec-style pattern, while the white away features a red 'plumage' across the shoulders inspired by the Mexican national crest. Now, in the year when we here Umbro celebrate our 90th birthday, both shirts have been faithfully recreated for this new incarnation. At the moment the shirts are only available in Mexico itself, but if we manage to get our hands on any elsewhere, we'll let you know!
