18. Liam Scott, <br /><br />What\'s the story with the French 3rd shirt? No Adidas branding? I guarantee that shirt wasn\'t on the plane with them when they departed France for Argentina. That was obviously case of s**t lads the home & away kit still clashes with the opposing team. Soloution send the kit man down to the local sports shop to buy 11 shirts that aren\'t whit or blue!!!<br /> <br /> <br />17. trish....., <br /><br />great kits, pity Rep of Ireland were not there at the time they had a beautiful green jersey with an amazing white trim, they would have looked spectacular at this world cup, only thing was they only able to kick the ball with their left legs and their right legs wouldn\'t work so it made it impossible for them to run they kept going around in circles, no wonder they didn\'t qualify..............<br /><br />that\'s what i think anyway.<br /> <br /> <br />16. Paolo Granda, <br /><br />I know Italy wore black shorts on one of their games in this world cup....

Paolo Granda, <br /><br />I know Italy wore black shorts on one of their games in this world cup. The \'74, \'78, and \'82 world cups were the best in my book and the jerseys worn were the best too<br /> <br /><br /> <br />15. Claudio Pasqualetti, <br /><br />Love the Levi\'s Mexico kit but what does the C mean on the sleeve of the Poland kit?<br /><br /><br />14. Tom,<br /><br />Agree with the comments already posted, 1978 world cup was the pinnacle of shirt design, kits nowadays (especially nike ones) are so crap, you would never hear such legendary kit stories such as the France/Kimberley FC one today, I just wish i had been born early enough to have seen this golden age. <br /> <br /> 13. Eugenio, <br /><br />Comment #7 is very well informed, France had no third shirt. Those green and white shirts belonged to Kimberley FC, a very small team which plays the Mar del Plata City regional league. The bizarre or scandalous situation (a national team playing a World Cup match with borrowed shirts) had to do with colour clash and TV demands, but it would have been enough if only one of the teams changed to their second white kit. Well, both teams travelled from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata with white shirts and nothing else to replace them, so one of them had to wear the Kimberley FC shirts.<br />And about TV: nobody had a color TV in Argentina for the 1978 WC. We Argentinians watched all games in B/W, although ATC (the national broadcasting system) broadcasted in color for the first time for the rest of the world. It\'s great to live in the third world.<br />Well, I just discovered this site, and it\'s great. I really appreciate the football shirt culture of English people. You have always had the best designs. And I\'m very pleased because you put our shirt next to England\'s and Germany\'s. Great rivals, the same passion for football. And as we say here, you don\'t buy brazilian smoke. That\'s a pleasure, believe me.

Answer to Claudio\'s question about the \"C\"on Poland shirt: This was a symbol of \"Centrum Zdrowia Dziecka\", or \"Children\'s Health Center\". It was a huge hospital for childrens\' diseases that was being built in Poland at that time. The Polish FA asked for a special dispensation from FIFA to be able to carry the hospital\'s symbol on their kits (as means of raising funds, I suppose), and were actually granted that dispensation. This was a big deal in Poland at that time...that\'s why I remember it.
