Matchworn Eric Mbangossoum 29.03.22 GAM 🇬🇲 - CHA 🇹🇩 2-2
Just like with „Jordan“ and „Georgia”, searching for Chad jerseys online will bring up a plethora of results that have absolutely nothing to do with football, whatsoever. In addition to that, jerseys from the Central African country are among the rarest in the world and the ones that appear online are all fake, making it quite a tiresome endeavor to get your hands on an authentic Chad shirt.
With their current AFCON record being a combination of not qualifying, withdrawing, or being banned, the “Sao” have yet to partake for any major tournament. Their biggest achievement to date was their win of the 2014 CEMAC Cup, a tournament contested by Central African states.
In March 2021, the Chadian government dissolved the Chadian Football Federation, causing the FIFA to ban the country due to the government’s interference with the football federation. In 2022, the team resumed playing again, when they faced The Gambia in the AFCON Qualifiers preliminary round.
After years of boring Adidas templates, Chad, like many African nations, sealed a deal with Italian manufacturer "Macron" to finally receive some less-boring template shirts. After my mysterious Adidas Chad shirt,this is already the second matchworn shirt of the Central African country, which is quite an achievement, considering any Chad shirts are extremely difficult to come by.
This away shirt was worn by midfielder Eric Mbangossoum when the team faced The Gambia during the AFCON 2023 Qualifiers.
