Matchworn (player and game unknown)
Jordan jerseys have long been among the most difficult shirts to collect, not least because of the country's English name. If you enter the word "Jordan" into a search bar, well, the first thing that comes up is a famous basketball player... Over the years, however, three match jerseys of the Arab country have eventually found their way into my collection – and this one is probably the most interesting of the three.
Based on a popular Adidas template, which was also used by Indonesia and the Faroe Islands, among others, it was worn by the Jordanians at the turn of the millennium.
During the 1999 Pan Arab Games in their own country, Jordan's head of state King Abdullah was also spotted in the stands wearing this jersey while celebrating his team's victory in the tournament.
From a fashion point of view, there's not much to report: the numbers and the federation badge are thickly printed on the silvery-shimmering fabric.
Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to trace exactly which player wore this jersey and in which match.
