Matchprepared/Matchworn Player unknown
I’ve already written about how Georgia is notoriously famous in Germany for their “Willies” and on how searching for Georgia jerseys on the English-speaking internet is a pain in the butt. Yet, I’ve been able to adopt three fantastic Georgia shirts into my humble collection.
While I absolutely love my other Georgia jersey made by “Lotto”, this beautiful maroon and white model is in no way inferior to said design.
It’s the 2000/2001 away shirt and comes in a three-color design, reminiscent of Georgia old flag. It also features the dinner-plate-sized FA badge and embroidered Lotto logos on the chest and on the sleeves. It was apparently worn in a match and even bears some light dirt stains on the back, but unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find out in which match and who is the litterbug that soiled my beloved shirt. However, there’s evidence to suggest that it was worn in a match against Lithuania in October 2001, as it is the only match, I was able to find pictures of, where the Georgian team wore this particular design.
