Collecting national team shirts from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

Eritrea

Eritrea – Away – 2015

Good things come to those who wait. However, I’m not a patient person, so I shelled out a lot of money for a matchworn Eritrea shirt from a refugee who quite literally fled the country with nothing but the shirt on his back. These things come and go in waves, so it was only a matter of time until some shirts became available.

From what I gather AMS mocked up a bunch of shirts and sent them off to the Eritrea national team who ended up wearing them in their World Cup Qualifiers against Botswana. I don’t think this was an official agreement, but that didn’t stop AMS flogging them in their own online shop. The reason Eritrea have not sold shirts in the past is due to strict laws banning people from selling items with Eritrean logos on.
