Home (1998-00) versus Italy EC Qualifier 1998

Dean Saunder's long sleeve spare -Saunders preference was for short sleeve shirts- from the opening Euro 2000 Qualifying game at Anfield against Italy on 5th September 1998. Wales lost the game 2-0 and Saunders was a 65th minute substitute when he replaced Nathan Blake. I obtained this shirt from an Italian collector who had been given the shirt by an official of the Italian FA, originally claiming it was match worn. Subsequent research has proved that Saunders did indeed wear a short sleeve shirt, see picture, which is copyright of Action Images.
