Eleven different styles of earring are available, “based on 11 different soccer formations”, a post on the designer’s Facebook page said.

A description of the 3-4-3 formation earrings reads: “3-4-3, a preferred soccer formation of Barcelona and AC Milan in the 1990s, that evolved from the 4-3-3.

“It looks very offensive, with only three players left to defend in front of the goal. However, midfield and backline can work well together on defence, especially when the ball is near their goal.”
