Bobby Moore's World Cup 1970 shirt up for sale

Bobby Moore’s England shirt from the 1970 World Cup is expected to fetch up to £40,000 when it goes under the hammer.

He wore it for the opening game of the 1970 Mexico World Cup against Romania, when the Three Lions took the field to defend the trophy they had won at Wembley four years earlier.

It has been put up for sale by its current anonymous owner and the auction is being organised by David Alexander, who runs Basildon-based football memorabilia website, Football Wanted.

Mr Alexander, 45, whose business has an office in Bentalls and a unit at the Battlesbridge Antiques Centre, said: 'It is completely unique and totally authenticated. It’s not like these days either, with players like Wayne Rooney, they get two shirts and another spare in case they get blood on one, but in those days it was just the one.'
