Umbro home match worn 1992-94 squad signed

What can i say about this shirt except absolutely awesome!!! It is a short sleeve Wales home Umbro 1992 to 1994 style shirt, believed to be worn by Ryan Giggs in an international match during either 1992/93 or 1993/94 seasons. We know its a Giggs shirt, because it has come to us from an ex-international team mate of Ryan's, swapped after a later international.

This style of shirt would have been worn by Giggs early on in his international career. He actually wore a short sleeve shirt in the away World Cup Qualifier against The Faroe Islands in June 1993, but this shirt does not have the cloth National Crest stitched over the plastic embossed replica style badge that Wales actually used in this one fixture. But it does confirm that he wore short sleeve shirts at this stage of his international career. The shirt has also been signed to the front 15 of the squad from the 1993 era including, Southall, Rush, Hughes, Speed, Saunders and Giggs himself.

So considering its history and provenance, made a little more special being squad signed, the shirt takes pride of place in our collection, as a match worn Ryan Giggs Wales shirt, we are just unable, at this time, to identify the game it comes from. Research is ongoing! The picture is of Giggs in action against the Faroe Islands in the 1993 match and is copyright of Getty Images.
