Home 2010-12; Adidas

The Shirt:  This is one that caught me off guard when I first saw it. At first, I though it was terrible, but it gre on me and then when it appeared on Ebay at a god price I went for it, just to add another country to my collection really.  When it arrived though, I was instantly won over.  It looks much better in the flesh, and on the body.  I'm usually not a fan of the a-symmetrical look, but this is excellent. This was the first outing for this crest and it features the text "Suomi", which is the Finnish for Finland. This is also written on the back of the shirt, at the neck.  2010 did see them beat San Marino 10-0.

The Finnish national team hasn't had a whole lot to shout about to date.  They have never appeared at a major finals.  Their stand out legend is Jari Litmanen who is both top caps holder and record goal scorer.  England's Roy Hodgson cut his international teeth there, and I'm led to believe he is remembered fondly.

  1. Finland football shirt . His design has the characteristics of their own country. Giving small fresh feeling.
