WALES (Away 2000-02) v NORWAY World Cup Qualifier 2001

Every once in a while somebody will get in contact about a shirt that really excites me. So when i received an email off Joe telling me he had a Giggs Wales shirt i was obviously interested. Subsequent telephone calls confirmed that in fact Joe had in his possession Ryan Giggs away match worn and signed shirt from the Wales World Cup qualifying game against Norway on 5th September 2001!!

What did excite me the most was the fact that one, it was a Giggs Wales shirt and two, it was in one of the four styles of Welsh shirts that i do not have in my collection! Great i thought, a new Giggsy and another style ticked off the list, before Joe broke the bad news, "i'm not looking to sell at the moment!" Gutted. But with his permission i am very happy to list such a significant shirt on So why is it significant? Well Ryan Giggs OBE, has only ever been sent off once in his senior professional career, wearing this shirt. He has never been dismissed whilst playing for Manchester United but in September 2001 in Ullevaal, Oslo, when representing his beloved Wales, he harshly received a second yellow card in the 86th minute and was sent from the the field. Wales undeservedly lost the game 3-2. 

It has unbeatable provenance, having originated from ex-Welsh international John Robinson's testimonial. As you can see from the pictures Joe has mirror mounted it and framed it, presenting as a superb piece. Now all i've got to do is convince him to sell it to me!
