As New Order’s Bernard Sumner sang in 1990s World in Motion, "when something's good, it's never gone" – and three decades on, that's the case with England’s famous Italia 90 kits.
While Paul Gascoigne and Sumner were two of the faces that made England’s 1990 kits so iconic. It is the fans that keep the kits in fashion as they continue to wear them in the stands.
The then 23-year-old Gazza lit up Italia 90 with a mixture of his skill, desire and of course his tears in the famous white shirt, while England fans both at home and in Italy were enjoying the tournament and the soundtrack to that summer was provided by New Order’s World in Motion - with singer Sumner donning the light blue third shirt in the music video.

Three decades on and Score Draw - officially licensed by The FA to reproduce a range of popular retro shirts - have produced a new Black Out shirt to celebrate the iconic design.
The new shirt joins the Mash-Up shirt released in April to celebrate Italia 90 and the impact it had on football in England. The England 1990 Black-Out shirt acknowledges the subculture of football supporters, the hope and humility, the dedication and sacrifice.
It is testimony to their resilience. The shirt is a uniquely interpreted version of the cult England 1990 third shirt and of an alternative English football culture. A shirt of conscientious objection.
This is a shirt of remembrance and respect. A shirt that proudly embraces all of England’s colours, classes and creeds.
To see the full range of Score Draw’s SD90 range, go to: www.scoredraw.com or we have one of these special shirts to giveaway. To be in with a chance of winning it, send an email to email@example.com with the answer to this poser: England begin their Euro 2020 campaign at Wembley on June 13 against which team?
