This shirt was issued to captain Robbie Keane for the friendly international match played against Brazil on February 6th 2008 at Croke Park, Dublin. Ireland lost the match 1-0. It is a green, home, long-sleeved shirt and has not been signed. Keane wore short-sleeves in the game which is how I can be sure this is not his worn shirt. He swapped this shirt with one of the Brazil players  after the match who then gave it to a friend; I purchased it from them. 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.
