    The 1981 Boca Juniors home shirt is one of the most memorable thanks to one of the men that wore it, Diego Maradona. The Argentine great led the club to the top flight title, the only one he achieved in his home country. The shirt had no club badge on it and was simply identifiable by the yellow sash that wrapped around it.

    Football fans may associate the blue and yellow kit with Boca Juniors, but not realise what inspired the look. The Buenos Aires club adopted the blue and yellow colours after gaining inspiration from the national flag of Sweden. As the club were based in the city’s docklands, a Swedish ship in the port gave the club inspiration to wear a strip of blue and yellow.
