Matchprepared for Roin Kvaskhvadze 16.10.2018 LVA 🇱🇻 : GEO 🇬🇪 0-3
With three Georgia shirts already in my collection and three articles already written, it becomes increasingly difficult to tell you more interesting facts about Georgia and Georgian football.
I’ve talked about the annoyance of searching for “Georgia football shirt” on the English-speaking internet and the famous Georgian “Willi’s” in the German Bundesliga.
So, let’s not get lost in redundancy and use our time to marvel at this frog green goalkeeper shirt:
When I first saw this shirt in another collection, I knew I had to have it! A year later, I can finally hold it in my hands!
The design is based on Georgia’s home shirt and was prepared for substitute keeper Roin Kvaskhvadze for the Nations League game against Latvia, which the Georgians won 3-0.
While the design isn’t groundbreaking at all, it has a lot of nice details, like an outline of Georgian on the backside of the FA badge. And who doesn’t love colorful match details?
What makes this shirt stand out, however, is the fantastic choice of color. The bright green with the yellowish pattern really make the shirt pop and is a color scheme that’s unique in my collection.
Strangely, just like on the home shirt, the patterned stripes have some weird imperfections that apparently did not catch the eye of Adidas’ quality control.
Nevertheless, this shirt might very well be one of my favorite recent European designs and certainly a highlight of my matchworn/issued shirt collection.
