This is the Italy retro shirt World Cup 1982 from COPA Football. The football shirt is based on the away shirt that the Italians wore during the World Cup '82. Number 3 (Bergomi) on the back.
Italy won the World Cup in Spain in 1982. The Italy retro shirt is predominantly white and has a classic v-neck with a polo collar in blue. In addition, this collar is equipped with the colors of the Italian flag (red, white and green). These colors are also reflected in the trim at the bottom of the sleeves. The left chest is equipped with the vintage logo of the Italian Football Association. The COPA retro shirts have a regular fit and come in a luxurious COPA gift box. This shirt was worn by stars such as Rossi, Altobelli, Tardelli and Cabrini, among others.
During the 1982 World Cup, the Italians survived the First Round quite easily. In the second round, Italy was linked to Brazil and Argentina. After the mediocre first round, nobody gave the Italians a chance. Coach Enzo played the famous catenaccio football against the Argentines. Italy was successful twice in the counter-attack via Tardelli and Cabrini, resulting in a 2-1 win. Brazil needed a draw against Italy, but went full on the attack. Italy also played this match on the attack, which resulted in a 1-0 lead via Paolo Rossi. Socrates took care of the 1-1. Rossi made it 2-1 before half time. After the break, Dino Zoff had no chance with a shot from Falcao. Brazil had enough with the 2-2, but went on to attack. Again it was Rossi who scored 3-2. Dino Zoff made sure in the final phase with a number of good saves that Italy went to the semi-finals. In the semi-final Italy won 2-0 without many highlights, twice it was Paulo Rossi. The final now went between Italy and West Germany and was played in the Sandiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid. The first half was cautious, with the only 'highlight' being a missed penalty kick from Cabrini. Rossi took a 1-0 lead in the second half. Then Tardelli and Altobelli scored the 2 and 3-0. Just before the end, Breitner scored the West German goal, 3-1.
