We received a batch of A3 posters from a company called Tiny Industry last week – each of which shows off an illustration that appears on one of their Foot-T range of T-shirts that celebrates memorable moments from World Cups past…
The top left image celebrates the moment that Pickles the dog found the missing Jules Rimet cup in a bush in 1966 (clever Pickles) and the top right reminds us English folk rather painfully of the “hand of god” incident where Maradona managed to pull off the most sensational, unpenalised handball of all time.
And here’s the moment Cameroon player Roger Milla (the oldest player ever to play in a World Cup at the time) ran to the corner flag to do a celebratory dance after scoring (which he did on several occasions during the tournament).
And also an illustration that refreshes the more recent incident involving France’s Zinadine Zidane and Italy’s Marco Materazzi. It was the World Cup final between the two nations in 2006 and Materazzi insulted the Frenchman – possibly mentioning his mother and / or sister. Zidane’s response was to produce a headbutt to Materazzi’s chest that took away the breath of everyone who saw the incident.
You can order the T-shirts (for just over £15) from Tiny Industry’s website (tinyindustry.com), where you can also see how the T-shirt graphics look on T-shirts:
