The Football Association has called for Bobby Moore’s World Cup winning shirt to be found and “put on display to the nation”.
Moore’s red number six jersey which he wore when he captained England to glory against West Germany in 1966 has been reported missing by his first wife, Tina, in a story published by the Daily Mail.
“If there is somebody out there who has the shirt, I appeal for them to come to us, and explain how they came about it,” Mrs Moore said.
Moore, who played for West Ham and Fulham and was capped 108 times by England, died from bowel cancer in 1993.
The FA said: “Bobby Moore is an England hero. It would be wonderful if there was a way of finding his historic World Cup winning shirt and putting it on display for the nation.”
