JOHN ROBINSON

Home (2000-02) versus Armenia 500th game 2001

John Robinson's unused long sleeve 500th game match shirt. A very rare players shirt -Robinson was an unused substitute- from the World Cup Qualifying goal less draw with Armenia at the Millennium Stadium on 1st September 2001. The shirt carries the match details embroidered underneath the national Crest, to commemorate the 500th full international game of the Welsh national football team. It was the first time since 1974 that a Welsh first team shirt carried match detail embroidery on the shirt, and it would be nearly two years before it would be seen again. -see Daniel Gabbidon v Russia Euro 2004 Play Off shirt.

The shirt has been squad signed by the team who were involved in the game and came to me from a good friend of John's to whom he gave the shirt in the players lounge immediately after the match.

The photo shows Craig Bellamy prior to the match in the same style shirt, with the match detail embroidery clearly visible and is copyright of Action Images.
