GERAINT WILLIAMS

 

Hummel Away (1987-90) versus Italy 1988

Geraint Williams' Wales away yellow Hummel manufactured match worn shirt from the excellent 1-0 friendly win against Italy in Rigamonti, Brescia on 4th June 1988. The shirt has the plastic embossed replica crest and the sublimated number 4 to the reverse.


This victory proved sweet for the legendary Welsh striker Ian Rush, who'd experienced a tough season for his Italian club Juventus. Many Italian journalists turned up expecting a handsome Italian victory and to gloat at the departing Rush, but the Welshman had the last laugh, showing his predatory instincts turning and hooking in Wales 38th minute winner. Rush completed a Welsh two game end of season tour a happy man, having also scored the winner in Wales 3-2 win against Malta in Valletta 5 days earlier.
