Topper 1991 Brazil Match Worn Home Shirt

Brazil 1991 player shirt by Topper believed to have been match worn by Cléber in the friendly match against Wales played at Cardiff Arms Park on the 11th September 1991.


The match proved to be one to remember for all time for Wales and one to forget for Brazil. Brazil had won five and drawn one of their previous meetings with Wales but here they were shocked by Terry Yorath's men who grabbed a famous win thanks to a second half goal by Dean Saunders.

Cléber only had three caps to his name prior to this match but played the full game for Brazil who were led by Careca and also boasted Bebeto, Cafu and Mauro Silva in their starting line-up. The defender would go on to win two Serie A and one Copa Libertadores titles with Palmeiras and featured 13 times in total for the Seleção. This was the last ever time that Brazil would wear shirts made by Topper, the Brazilian manufacturer had produced the shirts for three World Cup's '82, '86 and '90 but Umbro took over for the next match which was against Yugoslavia in October '91.

Correct player size print professionally heat pressed, transfer CBF crest and Topper logo, size specified as 12, long sleeved version not commercially available, swapped with a Wales player and comes from their own personal collection - a signed letter verifying this will be provided.
