349.99

Very rare match worn or issued long-sleeved Spain home shirt from a number #16 who played in the international seasons 1996-1998.

Spain played a total of 10 matches in UEFA Group 6 of the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualification round. Faroe Islands, Slovakia, Yugoslavia, Malta, and the Czech Republic joined Spain in this Group 6.

They played the following matches in the home shirt:
Faroe Islands 2 – 6       Spain                  (4 September 1996)   – short sleeves
Spain              4 – 1       Slovakia              (13 November 1996)  – short sleeves
Spain              2 – 0       Yugoslavia         (14 December 1996)  – short sleeves
Spain              4 – 0       Malta                  (12 February 1997)     – short sleeves
Yugoslavia     1 – 1        Spain                  (30 April 1997)            – long sleeves
Spain              1 – 0       Czech Republic (8 June 1997)              – short sleeves
Spain              1 – 3       Faroe Islands     (11 October 1997)       – short sleeves
Spain              1 – 1        Romania             (19 November 1997)   – short sleeves

Most likely this shirt was made for the #16 in the Yugoslavia away match of 04/30/1997 (result: 1-1), because Spain wore long sleeved shirts for the only time in the qualification stage.

The shirt has all the characteristics of a match shirt: long sleeves, the number on the front and back that have been professionally heat pressed, Made in U.K.

Comes from a well-known (vintage) football shirt collector, who has hundreds of national team and club match worn shirts. Received from a Spanish player. #16 player unknown.
