This shirt was a spare issued to Steve Finnan for the match against Croatia on August 15th 2001. I believe it was not actually worn because the photo below clearly shows Finnan playing in the match wearing a short-sleeved shirt. This shirt bears the correct features of all authentic Ireland players shirts and has been signed on the front by Finnan. The match details have been printed onto the front of the shirt. The shirt differs from replica shirts because there is no sponsor's logo on the front: all Ireland replica shirts from 1992 onwards had a sponsor logo written on the front; shirts without a sponsor logo could not be bought in shops from this period onwards
