Mauritius is a tiny island a long way off the east coast of Africa, and I do as it happens have an old school friend whose ex-pat parents live there. Fortunately I didn’t have to have that slightly awkward conversation since one popped up on eBay from the same seller as the Kenya shirt.
I was worried from the eBay listing that this may not be an official national football shirt, and photos from the Mauritius national team are quite hard to come by, but when the shirt came it was clear that it was the real deal.
Total cost – £19.75
