Matchworn/Matchprepared Antonio Rüdiger 29.06.21 ENG 🏴 : 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 "blackout" away jersey from 2020 is probably one of the most interesting jerseys of "Die Mannschaft". The elegant mix of black/anthracite with dark gray applications is disturbed by the terrible white front number on the player version. Even though a number in gray would have looked much better, FIFA would probably have been against it due to the lack of legibility.
The jersey was worn by Antonio Rüdiger during the bitter quarter-final against England at EURO 2020/21 and has all the details of a player's jersey. Instead of a standard size indication, the size 6 is noted on the neck. There are also light gray match details from the game against England on the front.
Having already added jerseys from the Africa Cup, Asia Cup, Copa America, Gold Cup and World Cup to my collection, I'm delighted to be able to call a shirt from the European Championship my own. It comes from an employee of the football federation who received it from the players.
