Matchprepared for Iván Periáñez 07.10.2011 AND 🇦🇩 : IRL 🇮🇪 0-2
Once a football shirt collector decides to concentrate his collecting (partly) on a particular team he or she will inevitably be confronted with the question “Will I be ‘that guy’ who also tries to amass every goalkeeper shirt and shirts that only differ in minute details?”.
While there’s certainly some loss of control taking place, I’m not a complete shirt lunatic (yet) and thus I’ve decided to only add special goalkeeper shirts to my growing Andorra collection.
As a consequence, I could hardly say “no”, when fellow collector Adam offered me this exciting goalkeeper shirt as part of an epic shirt swap.
Used in 2010 and 2011 in a handful of games, the shirt is based on a rather peculiar Adidas goalkeeper template. Dizzying patterns and radiant yellow trims give the shirt a 90’s “vibe” and certainly set the shirt apart from the boring Adidas jerseys Andorra’s goalkeepers have usually used.
The shirt was prepared for substitute goalkeeper Iván Periáñez for a match against Ireland in 2011. Periáñez, however, would never play for the national team, finishing his career at Andorran site Sant Julia.
