2002-03 France Home Shirt Size XL
Era: 2002-03 (Used for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup final, and throughout the 2004 European Championships qualifying campaign)
The shirt remains generally in good condition, for its age however, I would opine that this shirt is in great condition, however the mesh does bear some pulls and signs of wear, and there is staining in some parts also.
Size: Extra Large
Pit to Pit Measurement: 23.5 inches
Shirt Length: 31.5 inches
As per the fitting of shirts in that era, this comes up very baggy; and regrettably, while the sizing has worn off the label, having measured the shirt; I have decried that this would be akin to a modern day extra large.
On the eve of the 2002 FIFA World Cup; France were the consensus best international team on the planet given that they were then reigning: World Champions, European Champions, and Confederations Cup champions! To usher ‘Les Bleus’ into the far east, Adidas made a simple, yet classy offering consisting of a simple royal blue backdrop, with red side panels. Adidas equipped a series of shirts with a 2-tone netted effect, and this was one of them with the first layer being made using a mesh.
The notable players that season(s) were:
David Trezeguet, Thierry Henry, Djibril Cisse, Nicolas Anelka, Sidney Govou, Christophe Dugarry, Sylvain Wiltord, Jerome Rothen, Ludovic Giuly, Johan Micoud, Robert Pires, Zinedine Zidane, Youri Djorkaeff, Emmanuel Petit, Claude Makelele, Patrick Vieira, Olivier Dacourt, Willy Sagnol, Frank Leboeuf, Bixente Lizarazu, Marcel Desailly, William Gallas, Philippe Mexes, Mikael Silvestre, Lilian Thuram, Vincent Candela, Fabian Barthez
