THE TEAM

The Liechtenstein national football team, known as "The Blue-Reds", did not participate in any qualifying series until the UEFA Euro 1996 qualifiers. During these qualifiers, they managed to surprise the Republic of Ireland by holding them to a 0–0 draw on 3 June 1995.

On 14 October 1998, they achieved their first victory in a qualifying campaign after winning 2–1 against Azerbaijan in a Euro 2000 qualifying match – a significant milestone for the small team. However, around the same time, Liechtenstein suffered its biggest ever loss, during qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, losing 1–11 to Macedonia, the result also being Macedonia's largest ever win to date.


THE SHIRT

Traditionally always playing in either blue or red, this is the first shirt that does not match the two national colors. The rare away jersey was worn in only two matches: during a 4-0 defeat to Iceland in 1997 and finally in 1999 against Bosnia, the last match in which the nation took the field with a jersey from French manufacturer "Le Coq Sportif". Like the blue version in my collection, this yellow shirt was also produced by the Swiss manufacturer "W'AMS Sportwear" and was finally provided with the Le Coq Sportif logo.

It was worn by defender Thomas Hanselmann, who apparently did a very good job on this day, so that his team can look back on a quite respectable 0-0 against Bosnia.

In 2016, the Liechtensteiner then wore another unusual jersey when they took to the field in white for two matches.

Since I'm always looking for unusual jerseys, this chic piece of course could not be missing in my collection!
