Modern players wearing Copa Mundial boots will make you tear up with nostalgia

Go watch an amateur game on a Saturday or Sunday around Europe and 99% of players will be wearing the adidas Copa Mundial.

It’s a Sunday League staple. Understated. Weather resistant. Perfect for your everyman needs.

But you’d be hard pushed to find Copa Mundials in the professional game. Luckily, there are a few anti-heroes keeping the cult alive.

So here’s to the players that don’t need a bright yellow pair of spacecrafts on their feet to stand out.

You simply can’t be the contrast of a white and black boots, complete with the finest leather and tantalising tongue.

To tie down or to wear up? That is the question. All hail the Copa Mundial.
