Vintage Australia World Cup 1974 Short Sleeve Soccer Shirt
History by Qualification
Made in Europe
Crafted by our friends at COPA Football
1974 Marked a watershed year for the Australian National Soccer team. This was the first year in history the country qualified for the FIFA world cup. This shirt commemorates a historic time for the country's national team.
1974 marks the first of five occasions to date that Australia has qualified for the World cup, and the last time until 2006. Although Australia drew against Chile in the 1974 cup and did not advance from pool play, the team's contributions to history will never be forgotten, as they began the path leading to Australia's four consecutive World Cup qualifications at the dawn of the new millennium.
While the effects of the Cup were not seen immediately, the qualification and travel worked to reduce xenophobia and further grow the sport of soccer within Australia. The long journey to the world cup resulted in history for the country, which is commemorated by this shirt. This replica will be delivered free to your doorstep and comes wrapped in a giftbox. It is perfect for any collection, wardrobe, or as a gift.
