The world's top active pro footballer makes a play for your attention, with this Lionel Messi match-worn Argentina National Team jersey. South America is a known breeding ground for legendary soccer superstars and in keeping with this tradition, Messi captains his homeland Argentina National Team, while starring for Paris Saint-Germain, in France's Ligue 1. Manufactured by Adidas, this match-worn shirt is a cherished prize for world football fans
Typically, Argentina wore their light-blue and white kit during the 2019 season, however the offered shirt is a scarce, darker blue version of lesser use, which the team can be seen wearing in an international friendly match versus arch-rival Brazil. Reporting in excellent condition, with light signs of use/wear, this proud jersey bears the Argentina Football Association "AFA" crest on the left breast, and an Adidas sponsor logo is located on the right, while Messi's famous number "10" is centered below. Messi's number is repeated on the back, and other maker's provenance is noted in the form of an Adidas logo inside the collar, an Adidas label on the right side, and a HEAT.RDY label on the left front tail. Completing the design elements are taut light-blue and white accent bands around the collar and on the sleeves, along with light-blue stripes on the shoulders.
