This shirt was a very cheap one and it looks nice, so that makes me really happy. But I must admit that the green home-version of this shirt is even greater. Their last cup was in 1986. That's a long time ago! But there team isn't good enough to qualify for any cup. But they have a great forwarder: David Healy. He scored the most goals in the qualification matches for the European Cup in 2008.

Their shirt nowadays is great! I love the Umbro designs. I've got one shirt of them. It's my Canada football shirt. Also this shirt is great!

It took a while to post a new shirt on my blog. Sorry for that! Soon there will be some rare shirts posted on my blog. East-Timor, Tuvalu, Kyrgyzstan, Haiti, Cyprus, Guatemala,Jamaica and Mali. So keep following me to see those pictures! Next week I have enough time to work on my blog, so than there will be some shirts!

After a trip to Czech Republic I had a Slovakia shirt. I bought this shirt in Prague. The funny thing is, that I was looking for a Czech Republic shirt, but I couldn't find any shirt of them. After a while I found this Slovakia shirt. I love this Adidas-design. I always love the Adidas design. It's very basic, but I love the simple blue colour. The logo isn't very special. There isn't any sign of football in it.

This shirt belongs to the boring Puma shirts. It's also not really nice to wear. Senegal hasn't a brilliant team.  But they won against Cameroon, so they did qualify for the African cup. But I think they don't come far.

This shirt I got thanks to Enrique. I love the dark red colour. Venezuela has a okay team, but they aren't as good as teams like Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina. But at the Copa America 2011 they had a draw against the Brazilians and they had a winning game against Chile. So they aren't as bad as they look like.

This shirt I got from my uncle. He went to Morocco a long time ago and he took this Morocco shirt with him. Most of the time the shirt of the better teams are easier to get. You get Ghana and South-Africa. Those teams are good and the shirts are easy to get. Morocco shirts are also easy to get, but surprisingly there team isn't very good. They didn't even qualify for the African cup for 2010. But now they did qualify and I think they are one of the outsiders. They can even win the tournament I think. I will follow them in January, when the African Cup begins.

The shirt from 'Les Bleus' I bought in Avignon. That's near by Carcassonne, a famous place in France. It has a huge and beautiful citadel.

I think the France team isn't very strong anymore. Zidane and Henry were very important for France, but now they haven't very good other players. The flop in the World Cup 2010 wasn't very good for the image.

The Nepal shirt appeared on a local sort of Dutch Ebay called http://www.marktplaats.nl/. It's very rare that such a special shirt come up on this site. I also bought Zambia on this site. First I wasn't sure if this shirt was real, but then I looked at Nick's Nepal shirt. His red version is Nepal's home shirt. So I was for sure that my blue one is the away version.

The quality of the shirt is very bad, so I don't wear it. Also this South-East Asian country uses his flag as logo.

Thanks to Sascha, I get this Albania shirt. This shirt appeared on the German Ebay. Albania is for an European country really hard to get, so I was really happy with this shirt. The logo is very small. So it looks like it's a fake shirt, but after seen some match pictures, I realized that this was a real shirt.

I love to have shirt fromm more different cloth sponsor. Not only Adidas or Nike. So this Umbro is very nice to add by my England and Canada shirt. Mazuno (Phillipines), Locust (Bermuda) and Grand Sport (Kyrgyzstan) will follow soon!

I got one of Olivers favourite shirts. This shirt was wearing at the World Cup in South-Africa. My uncle had some people there in South-Africa so he asked them to buy some shirts for me. As result, a few weaks later this beautfil Ghana and the blue Argentina arrived. I love to wear shirt, during some football training or something, but Ghana is one of those shirt I can't wear. It is just not my shirt. I don't know, maybe it's the colours of the shirt.

Ghana also played really well at the World Cup. They came to the quarter final and then lost from Uruguay after a penalty shootout.

Maybe one of the most ugly shirts I've ever seen. It looks like the shirt is fake, but it isn't. It looks like they used the same fabric as they use now by fake shirts. The print on the shirt makes it also worser. However they have won the World Cup in 1994 in this shirt, so it's very special. I bought this shirt for 10 euros, so I was very happy with it. I didn't want any nike shirt from Brazil.

This shirt is very special shirt. Suriname was a colony of the Netherlands, so we've got a close relationship with Suriname. Players like Kluivert, Seedorf and Elia got parents coming from Suriname. But they grew up in the Netherlands.

About the shirt. This shirt has a beautiful design. Because of the relation between the Netherlands and Suriname it was possible to get more shirts. So that made me possible to trade shirts with other collectors like Oliver, Joe and Enrique. That was the way I learned those other collectors so I'm very happy with those shirts. I'm remember that Joe contacted me on facebook with: "Hi, are you the Suriname guy?". Very funny.

This shirt I bought on a trip to Sweden. It's a beautiful country where you can drive with your car for several hours and see no one else. I love it. Sweden is always a counrty who qualified them for the World en European Cup, but never come far. Also this year they will be in Poland and Ukraine. Thanks to Holland. We didn't lose a qualifaction match for 4 years, but then we lost from Sweden. It wasn't very good for the Dutch team. Every newspaper is always positive about the Netherlands, but after the trip to Sweden it changed. They doubt about the qualities of our team. I found it bullshit. We were second at the World cup and this year we will beat the rest of Europe. Like Germany (especially them :P, sorry Sascha), England, no Scotland (next time better Joe) and at last we will take revenge on Spain. I think it won't be any problem.

This Sweden shirt is very lovely with the blue and yellow colours.

Africa United

This shirt I bought after the World Cup 2010. The shirt colours are very special. There isn't any other shirt which has the same colours as these. But I would never wear it. It's not my favourite shirt, but it's fun to have this shirt.

This shirt was on my wanted list. Not because of the design of the shirt, but because what they have reached with this shirt. In 2004 they won the European Cup final against Portugal. It was Angelos Charisteas who scored from a corner. I think it was for everyone a big surprise that Greece won from everybody. This shirt I bought for 12 euros, so I'm very pleased to have this shirt. For persons who wants to know my further wanted list:
- Trinidad and Tobago 2006, Leo Beenhakker made it to the World cups with such a small counrty. I love this shirt and the story behind the shirt.
- South Korea 2002. The World Cup of 2002 was held in South Korea and Japan. Guus Hiddink came to the semi final with South Korea! Nowadays he is still a legend in South Korea.

This shirt I got from my aunt. She lived in Singapore for a while so she decided to buy a shirt for me. Thanks for that! A funny thing about the South-East Asia shirts is the logo. A lot of countries there haven't a logo but use their flage. Singapore and China are one of them.

Czech Republic

This is one of the shirts for which I paid to much. This is a Puma design and the most of the Puma shirts aren't very expensive. But this is one of the shirts I bought before I had started my collection. So I didn't had an idea what a good price was for a new shirts.
This Czech Republic shirt is bought in Czech Republic self. It was very hard to find a real shirt. It surprised me that the first real shirt I found was a Slovakia shirt. Very strange. The only place I found this shirt was in the fanshop of Sparta Prague.

My total payment for the Czech Republic shirt was 40 euros. It's a shame.

This Tunisia shirt is very boring. Puma uses always the same design for each country. A dutch site called plutosport.nl sells a lot of puma shirts. So I've got some Puma shirts, but all those designs are very boring. My Saudi Arabia shirt for example came also from that website. They qualified in 2006 for the World Cup, but I think that was a exception for them.

This shirt is also from my sister. She went for a half year to San Diego to study. She bought me and my brother a USA shirt. I got the blue shirt and my brother the red one. I love the last design of nike. So I also love the USA-shirts.

USA don't have great football players. I think the best player is Clint Dempsey. He's midfielder of Fulham. USA came never further then the quarter final in 2002. For such  a big country isn't that very good.

This shirt came up on a local sort of Ebay. I love this shirt. It's a new design of Nike. The star player of Zambia is Jacob Mulenga. He plays for my hometown club FC Utrecht. A very nice player. I paid 25 euros for this shirt. In mine opinion very cheap for this rare shirt and lovely design. So I'm very happy with this shirt.

The only thing I'm doubt about is the year this shirt is coming from. But when I see the design of Nike I believe this shirt is for the period 2010-2012

This is a shirt from the period Bulgaria was a decent football nation. Nowadays there not very good. Stoichkov, the best Bulgarian football player ever, says that these nowadays Bulgarian players may not even care the bagage of the football team of 1994. Bulgaria is not proud at his football team anymore. This shirt is from 1998. That year they came to the first round in the World Cup. In 2002, 2006 and 2010 they didn't qualify for the World Cup.

There aren't many white football shirts that has a beautiful shirt. This is one of those shirt. But this shirt has a huge and nice logo.

Last holiday I went to Canada. There I bought my shirt. Canada isn't  a football country, but they have a beautiful club: Vancouver Whitecaps. All the clubs in the USA and Canada have beautifull names. For example: Chicago Fire, New England Revolution, Los Angeles Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes.
Canada don't have a star player and they didn't qualify for a World cup since 1986

Hong Kong

This shirt I got from Oliver. Oliver is like my age, but has a bigger collection. It's suprisingly how he get some rare shirts. Respect for that and thanks for the shirt Oliver! Unfortunately Oliver stops his collection. It's a shame. I hope Oliver and I will keep contact!

I think the Hong Kong one is a beautiful shirt. I really like the dark red color and also the logo is very nice.

Argentina 2

Another Argentina shirt. This shirt was worn at the World Cup 2010. The tournament didn't went very well. There wasn't any interest in the team, but all the interest did go to Maradona. But his coach-abilities aren't very good.

This shirt belongs to one of my first shirts. It was a birthday present. I hadn't many football shirt, so I asked one for my 12th birthday. Why Cameroon and not the Netherlands? Easy. I found the design of this Cameroon shirt beautiful. The dark green color with a lion print on it. This was my favorite shirt, until the moment I worn it for the first time. The logo grated on my breast and the shirt wasn’t very comfortable. So I didn’t wear it many times. It’s a shame for such a beautiful shirt. But it deserves a place in my collection. That many shirts like this will follow my collection!
