Matchprepared Viktor Maier 2019 AFC Asia Cup

THE COUNTRY

Kyrgyzstan, the Kyrgyz Republic or Kirghizia (or as I like to write it: "Krgyzts$%§") – the Central Asian country has many names. Not one of them is particularly easy to write…

In the last years, football in Kyrgyzstan has become much more professional which is also reflected in their recent success. Currently ranked 98th in the FIFA ranking, the country climbed as high as rank 75 in 2018, when they managed to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup. They prompted a wave of euphoria after they advanced to the round of 16, where they lost to the UAE in extra time.

The Kyrgyz were not so successful in their last participation in 2024. After two defeats and a draw against Oman, they finished bottom of their group.

 

THE SHIRT

This simple and modern design from Spanish manufacturer Joma dates back to the Kyrgyz national team's most successful period: their first participation in an Asian Cup in 2019. It was prepared for the German-Kyrgyz Viktor Maier, who was injured shortly before the start of the tournament and was unfortunately unable to take part in this (certainly) career highlight. Maier played in Germany up to the Regionalliga and was a player for the German national team up to U-17 level before making his debut for Kyrgyzstan in 2015.
