Although this is a size XL, this is a Kappa shirt, and while their shirts in this mould wear not as tight as the efforts made in preceding season’s, it does still provide a hugging fit, so this shirt may be better for a size large.
Kappa and Wales continued their great artistic relationship with this striking shirt! The stand-out feature is without a doubt the huge white v-neck collar; meanwhile, the white hoops on the sleeves are they only other addition of colour to supplement the classic red; a stark contrast to the previous shirt which was all red. Moving away from the lycra materials of the previous cycle, this shirt is also a lighter shade of red than its predecessor.
The ushering of 2006 would allow Wales to put a tough 2005 in the rear-view mirror and instead, look to be one of the 16 teams taking part at Euro 2008. Preparations for the qualifiers would begin with a 4-match unbeaten run, however, defeats to the Czech Republic and Slovakia would see the campaign get off on the wrong foot, however, with back to back wins to see out the year, there would be a lot of optimism heading in to 2007. Despite avenging their 5-1 loss to Slovakia with a 5-2 triumph of their own; the accumulation of draws would hurt ‘The Dragons’ down the stretch as they would ultimately count the cost of another tournament that would take place without them. This cycle’s shirt would also hold the distinction of being last for the national side by Ryan Giggs as he announced his retirement from the international set-up in 2007.
The notable players that season(s) were:
Craig Bellamy, Robert Earnshaw, Gareth Bale, Simon Davies, Ryan Giggs, Joe Ledley, Jason Koumas, Carl Robinson, Richard Duffy, Rob Edwards, Neal Eardley, Daniel Gabbidon, Sam Ricketts, Paul Jones
