Latvia Home 2006


Flag of Latvia

First international: Latvia 1-1 Estonia (1922)

Biggest win: Latvia 9-0 Estonia (1942)

Biggest loss: Sweden 12-0 Latvia (1927)

Most capped: Vitalijs Astafjevs (167 caps)

Top scorer: Maris Verpakovskis (28 goals)

Most people would see Latvia as one of the lesser teams in Europe. But in 2004 they managed to qualify for the European Championship which was a surprise to everyone. They did not manage to get out the group but played well and did not disgrace themselves. This shirt has a weirdly designed collar though for some reason but is a nice feeling shirt when worn
