Ahead of an international tournament involving England, Three Lions fans have plenty of retro shirts to choose from in order to support the team.

But whether you’ve got a rare shirt from 50 years ago or the current top, it’s highly unlikely yours is better than George Lineker’s.

The son of England hero Gary Lineker took a photo of himself ahead of England’s last-16 game against Colombia at the 2018 World Cup, appearing to be wearing his father’s own shirt from the 1986 tournament.

England were knocked out in the quarter-finals that year by Diego Maradona’s Argentina, but Gary still managed to bag the Golden Boot that year as top goalscorer at the competition with six goals.

At least he didn’t wear your Golden Boot as well, Gary.
