The England cap awarded to Bobby Moore for an England v Hungary World Cup match in May 1962 is up for auction with a guide price of £15,000-£20,000.

The World Cup Group Stage fixture was played in Rancagua, Chile and England lost the match 2-1. The cap was just the second of 108 England caps won by Moore, who would later captain his country to its only World Cup triumph to date in 1966.

Drafted in late before the tournament, he quickly established himself in the team at the age of just 21.

A flag believed to have been flown at Wembley during the 1966 World Cup is also set for auction. The flag, which was part of the 1966 World Cup 50th Anniversary Exhibition at Manchester's National Football Museum in 2016, is set to go under the hammer at Hansons Auctioneers with an estimate of £2,000-£3,000.

The auction also includes a shirt worn by legendary Argentinian player Sergio Aguero when he scored the winning goal in Manchester City's 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers in the last match of the 2011-12 season. His goal in added time secured the league championship title for the Blues for the first time in 44 years. His shirt has a guide price of £15,000-£20,000.

Another football shirt in the sale has a quirky tale to tell - because it wasn't worn. The rare Nottingham Forest 1993-95 long-sleeved away shirt is believed to be a match-prepared shirt for Stuart Pearce but he refused to wear it. The vendor obtained the item from a relative who worked for Nottingham Forest. It is expected to fetch between £600-£800.

Hansons' World Cup and Sports Memorabilia sale will take place on 3 November 2022.
