Signed by Spurs legend Ricky Villa!

This superb shirt has been signed by Spurs legend Ricky Villa. It is an official replica of the 1981 FA Cup final shirt, in which match Ricky starred. His wonder strike won the 1981 FA Cup Final replay for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester City.

The first match ended 1-1 after Manchester City's Tommy Hutchinson has scored at both ends, setting up a replay four days later. Villa opened the scoring in the eighth minute, before goals from Mackenzie and Reeves put City 2-1 ahead. A strike from Garth Crooks brought the sides level with 20 minutes to go and it looked likely that the tie would again go to extra time.

But with 14 minutes left on the clock, Villa picked up the ball inside City's half, jinked past three defenders and slotted the ball home. It was an incredible strike and meant Spurs won the game 3-2. It was also justly voted the Wembley goal of the century in 2001.

John Motson's commentary of the strike still sends a shiver down the spine of Spurs fans even today: "Villa. And still Ricky Villa. What a fantastic run, he scores; amazing goal!"

The shirt comes with a certificate of authenticity to guarantee your purchase and protect your investment.

Rules of the Game: An indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team if a goalkeeper takes more than six seconds while controlling the ball with his hands before releasing it from his possession. Goalkeeper is the only position to be explicitly part of the rules of the game since they were codified in the 19th century. The mascot for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany was a lion named Goleo VI. He had a talking soccer ball sidekick named Pille. America's best performance in the World Cup since 1930 came in 2002, when the Yanks made it to the quarterfinals. 199,854 people filled Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro to watch the 1950 World Cup final between Brazil and Uruguay.
