Bhutan 2016 away shirt (Passang Tshering)

National TeamsPosted by jurgen Sat, February 11, 2017 13:17:14

Bench worn shirt that was used by Passan Tshering in the World Cup 2018 qualification match against China (12-11-2015). Bhutan lost the match with a heavy 12 - 0 score. Passang stayed the whole 90 minutes on the bench.

You can call it half a miracle that Bhutan entered the qualification round. It was the first time in the history of Bhutan football they attempted to reach the group stage. And they succeeded after beating Sri Lanka.
After this pre-qualification round they were drawn in Group C for the group stage (group with China, Qatar, Hong Kong and the Maldives). All of these team were too strong for Bhutan but history was written.

The shirt is a really nice looking shirt, long sleeved shirt (not available in shops) with the World cup qualification patches and a nice dragon design.
Thanks a lot Passang for offering me this piece of history.
I am so proud on this one.
