Matchworn/Matchprepared Kai Havertz 21.11.23 AUT 🇦🇹 : GER 🇩🇪 2-0
Source: Federation employee
Although I'm German, my support for the German national team came to an abrupt end after the EURO 1996 – it's just much more fun to root for the underdogs.
Nevertheless, Germany has had some nice shirts over the years.
The player jerseys that Adidas has brought out for 2022 are of extremely high quality. In addition to the exceptional fabric, the entire jersey features black, red and gold details. The central black vertical stripe features the golden Adidas logo and the association crest. The golden #7 of Kai Havertz is emblazoned underneath.
The shirt comes from the recent defeat to neighboring Austria. Apparently the mood in the German dressing room was not so good, so that some shirts were simply thrown on the floor... Fortunately, an employee of the association took the liberty of giving the shirts a second home - one of them in my collection.
I chose Kai Havertz because he grew up at my favorite club, Bayer Leverkusen.
Interestingly, the long-sleeved shirts from the Austria game don't have size numbers on the neck, but letters. I have not yet been able to find out whether the shirt was actually worn. It does have a few stains, but these could have come from the dressing room floor.
