San Marino (2)

SAN MARINO 2014/15 - HOME SHIRT - ADIDAS

My first shirt with the badges of Euro 2016! :-) :-)
It was issued /worn by Maicol Berretti for the match played 8th September 2014 between San Marino and Lithuania and it was swapped at the end with lithuanian player Vytautas Andriuškevičius, who gave it to me.

Cuba

CUBA 2013/14 - HOME SHIRT - FORWARD

I did not think it could be so difficult to get a jersey of Cuba national team, considering how many people visit the island each year. In fact it is something impossible. The Forward, a company that has provided the ultimate kit, sells only 500 (!!!) or nothing, while the FA is untraceable. Luckily for me I found a huge help in Alianni Urgelles, who did everything he could to lend a hand. The shirt had been taken by a German friend (in fact, he now lives in Germany) on a visit to Cuba in his mother's house, and then bring it to him, before sending to me in Italy from Germany! What a story!




Turks & Caicos

TURKS & CAICOS 2010/14 - HOME SHIRT - PROSTAR

Shirt worn during several matches in last years, it comes directly from federation who agreed to sell it for my project.



Guinea Bissau (2)

GUINEA BISSAU 2014 - HOME SHIRT - ROLY

I was lucky enough to get another Guinea Bissau, this time from Ibraima So! He was called for national duty versus Botswana, in Africa Cup of Nations qualification, and he took back in Portugal (where he plays) this shirt to send it in Italy.



Timor-Leste

TIMOR-LESTE 2012 - HOME SHIRT - NIKE

Nice, legit and rare shirt of Timor-Leste (not like those fake sold on Ebay), used during campaign for Suzuki Cup (aka ASEAN Football Championship).
It's a gift from Eusebio de Almeida (you can read his name on the back).




Madagascar

MADAGASCAR 2012? - AWAY SHIRT - ADIDAS

I got this jersey from Faneva Ima Andriatsima, the best striker of Madagascar team (he plays in Creteil, France Ligue 2). He took that after a match with national team in summer 2014, but the shirt is a couple of seasons older. Anyway, it's good!





Burundi

BURUNDI 2014 - HOME SHIRT - ADIDAS

Shirt worn and gifted by Suleiman Ndikumana in Africa Cup of Nations qualification match vs Botswana.
