Umbro Cup

The Umbro Cup was a friendly international football competition, which took place in June 1995 in England. The trophy was sponsored by the sports brand Umbro, the manufacturers of England's kit.

Host nation England, Sweden, Japan and world champions Brazil participated in the tournament. Brazil were the eventual champions after winning all three of their games.

The staging of the competition served as a rehearsal for England's hosting of the European Championship the following summer. Matches took place at Wembley, Elland Road, Goodison Park, Villa Park and the City Ground. During the course of the competition England played their first home game away from Wembley since 1966.

Famous quotes containing the word cup:

    Sunday morning may be cheery enough, with its extra cup of coffee and litter of Sunday newspapers, but there is always hanging over it the ominous threat of 3 P.M., when the sun gets around to the back windows and life stops dead in its tracks.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
