Official Adidas South Africa home football shirt from the 2002/03 international season.
Condition of this original football shirt is 9/10 – Superb (see photos).
Material is bright, vivid and smooth. Fantastic looking shirt, ideal for a collector or for framing and a great piece of football memorabilia.
In the period following the 2002 World Cup and leading up to the 2006 FIFA World Cup, South Africa would go through 4 head coaches; Ephraim Mashaba (2002–2004), April Phumo (2004). Stuart Baxter (2004–2005), Ted Dumitru (2005–2006) and caretaker Pitso Mosimane (2006). Neither coach was able to match the successes seen in the period 1996–2002 as South Africa failed to progress beyond the group stages in either of the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations or 2006 Africa Cup of Nations, failing to register a single goal in the latter.
Above all though, South Africa failed to qualify for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. After being placed in Group 2 for qualifying, South Africa were beaten to Germany by Ghana. Following poor performances in both the 2004 and 2006 Africa Cup of Nations, rumours circulated that SAFA had been attempting to attract a high profile international manager to coach Bafana Bafana and that former England boss Sven-Göran Eriksson had been targeted. This rumour however has been denied.
