TAHITI 2013 - AWAY SHIRT - NIKE

FINALLY! F I N A L L Y ! My last shirt! After more or less 5 years spended on this task, I was able to track down and get the last shirt I miss to have all 211 FIFA national teams jerseys. More than an huge thanks goes to Ricky Aitamai, who first worn this shirt in Confederations Cup match vs Spain (20.06.2013) and then accepted to sell me this great piece of polyester!!
Don't worry, I won't stop collecting. I want to replace some old and bad looking shirts, and add some from teams affiliated to continental federations. But it's also time to promote a bit my work on newspapers, websites and all around!

TOGO 2017 - MACRON - AWAY SHIRT

Could I have not a shirt from African Cup 2017? Of course! This beauty was sent by Serge Akakpo, who I managed to contact online explaining my work. He was happy to help me, and waited till AFCON 2017 to send me a shirt. This Macron kit is available only to players and not for sale actually, with the official patch of the competition.


Suriname (2)

SURINAME 2012/14 - KELME - AWAY SHIRT

Rare Suriname shirt, as worn by the team during the friendly vs French Guiana in 2014 (thanks to Sven Weh for the photo). Shirt was provided by Emilio Limon, Suriboys midfielder, who sent it to his friend Dion Kwasie (based in Netherlands) and from there finally to Italy. I'm really happy to have this shirt, as Suriname worn shirts are extremely hard to get hand on.

KENYA 2016 - HOME SHIRT - UHLSPORT

Considering I hardly managed to find photos of my first Kenya shirt, I tried adding another one. This one come from Aboud Omar, left back playing actually in Slavia Sofa (BG). He got it during one of his several trip to motherland for international duty.


Maldives (2)

MALDIVES 2015/17 - JOMA - HOME SHIRT

Classic Maldives kit, as they are wearing it since 2015. I assure it come directly from Maldives FA headquarters (I should still have the pic of the envelope somewhere) despite the little difference in this version (logo + flag instead of only MFA logo).


Bangladesh (2)

BANGLADESH 2016 - LOTTO - HOME SHIRT

This is my second Bangladesh shirt, and indeed it's a little more brillant than the anonymous orange one I already had. This come from national team kitman Mohsin and thanks also to goalkeeper coach Ryan, who sent to me from Australia. I think it's a fake Lotto shirt (but the team used that), with a little difference on the chest with the one in the photo below (it has only flag, mine Lotto logo + flag). Considering from where it come, I think it's already good!
