FILE - The July 30, 1966 file photo shows England's soccer captain Bobby Moore, carried shoulder high by his team mates, holding aloft the World Cup trophy. England defeated Germany 4-2 in the final, played at London's Wembley Stadium. From left to right, goalkeeper Gordon Banks (partially obscured), Alan Ball, Martin Peters, Geoff Hurst, Moore, Ray Wilson, George Cohen and Bobby Charlton. Another Germany vs. England match at the World Cup brings back memories of classic moments that include a disputed goal in the final, the English losing a 2-0 lead, and a dramatic shootout win for the Germanys. The two teams meet in the last 16 on Sunday and could well write another chapter in one of soccer's most famous rivalries. (AP Photo)

Some of England's kits over the years are more iconic than others. The 1966 vintage, for example, will for obvious reasons be worn for football eternity.

In this brilliant infographic, produced by Printsome, we see the evolution of England kits from 1872 to 1982. 


Part two of this project will take the England kit from 1983 to present day. We'll be posting that soon.
