Fifa World Stars vs The Americas
Match Worn Shirt
Things to Know:
This shirt was worn by Michael Laudrup during the FIFA Charity Game for Unicef between FIFA World Stars and The Americas (a selection of North and South American players) which took place in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl Stadium on August 27th 1986. It was also the first chance to see Diego Armando Maradona playing after his Fifa World Cup 86 triumph in Mexico. The American team won 4-3 after penalties. It’s very curious that Fifa World Stars played with two different kind of names on the back. Some shirts had white numbers and some other had red numbers.
