MARK HUGHES

Home (1994-96 style) Umbro v Norway Friendly 1994


Mark Hughes's home match shirt from the 3-1 friendly defeat to Norway, Ninian Park, Cardiff on 9th March 1994. The game will be remembered as John Toshack's one and only game in his first stint as Wales International Manager. Not realising the level of support from the Welsh fans for former manager Terry Yorath, his name was constant chanted throughout the defeat to the Norwegians, Toshack resigned the following morning after only 41 days in the job. 

As you would expect a shirt of such a famous Welsh international star, comes with exceptional  provenance coming from the collection of a former Norwegian FA administrator, swapped at his request to a Norwegian player, who exchanged with Sparky post match and donated it to the Norwegian official. It was also the first time Wales wore their new home shirt, the 3rd different style home shirt produced by the popular Manchester based manufacturer Umbro in their 2nd term as Welsh kit suppliers.
