This shirt was worn by Tore Andrè Flo during the Uefa Cup Winner’s Cup game between Chelsea and Vicenza which took place in London, “Stamford Bridge” Stadium, on April 16th 1998. Chelsea defeated Vicenza 3-1 and they went straight to the Final. The 1998 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup Final was a football match that took place on 13 May 1998 at Råsunda Stadium in Stockholm, Sweden to determine the winner of the 1997–98 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. It was contested by Chelsea of England and VfB Stuttgart of Germany and was the 38th final of what was then Europe’s second largest football competition, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. A crowd of 30,216 were in attendance to witness Chelsea win the match 1–0, with Gianfranco Zola scoring the winning goal in the second half. As a result, the English club claimed the double, having previously won the League Cup earlier in the campaign. It was Chelsea’s second conquest of the Cup Winners’ Cup, adding to their 1971 victory. By winning the tournament, they also gained qualification for the 1998 UEFA Super Cup. Tore Andrè Flo was bought for £300,000 by Chelsea in the summer of 1997. Flo made his debut for Chelsea against Coventry City, and scored in a 3–2 loss for his side. He scored 15 goals in his debut season for Chelsea, including a hat-trick in a 6–1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane and two in a 6–2 win over Crystal Palace as Chelsea finished 4th in the FA Premier League and won the League Cup and the Cup Winners’ Cup. Flo made a particularly important contribution in the latter tournament, hitting two away goals against Real Betis in the quarter-finals. A year later, as Chelsea challenged for the title, Flo hit ten league goals, but constantly found his playing opportunities limited by manager Gianluca Vialli’s squad rotation policy and the signing of Italian striker Pierluigi Casiraghi. He made 163 appearances for Chelsea (70 of which were as a substitute) and scored 50 goals.
