I am one of the happiest national team collectors on this planet today ! I just received a parcel from Sao Tome and Principe today ! It came from a good friends of the Sao Tome FA president and he just got some shirts for me. First we tried if he is trustable ordering one shirt for my good friend Nick who was willing to take the risk for this one. Well, he turned out to be absolutely trustful and sent a shirt to Nick (the same as the one above). Afterwards my friend Eric offered me to pay me a Sao Tome and Prinicpe if I get one for him. Well, so I ordered 2 more shirts from my contact and here they are ! For now I have no idea which one I'll keep and which of those will go to Eric in Canada. So I just decided to post pictures of both shirts.
The above shirt (the one with #3) is pretty old and probably from the 2006 Lusophony Games in Macau. We failed to find a picture proof yet, though.
The second shirt (below, number 15) is the current shirt of the team. A picture of the ceremony where the FA got them handed by Afribraz can be seen at the end of this post.
Both shirts are in poor condition and heavily used, but hey, they are matchworn. I do not really care about that.

Laos vs. Indonesia (2:2) | friendly 2012
The first shirt I bought on this way is this great Laos shirt ! It came for just 23,02€ + 7,67€ for shipment from a seller in Thailand. I chose the name and number printed version which was just slightly more "expensive".
The design is really awesome ! Again FBT did a brilliant job with this shirt !

|Guam vs. India (0:4) | AFC Challenge Cup 2014 in Maledives|
|British Virgin Islands vs. Turks Caicos Islands | female U20 in 2010|
Anyways, this one is just perfect. It is a really simple design, but it is probably one of the rarest shirt out there (has ever anybody got one instead of Nick ?)
Just to post some alternative pictures again I will share a private picture of Jevone with you. Unfortunately he is not wearing the shirt on this pic, but instead he wears a track suit of the same design. Besides the pictures shows why the shirt is thaaat huge ;)
|Asselmo Massama (Foullah Edifice FC)|
Chad vs. Botswana (0:1) | AFCON 2012 qualifiers | 2011 in Chad
The picture above (as well as the following) are from Asselmo Massama Kiliouto (who is the captain and number 15 !), who I am in a good contact with. Just to be not a copy of Nicks blog (with cheaper pictures) I will post another picture of the shirt worn by the team. It is from the Botswana match again and shows the captains:

|Sorbia during Europeada 2012 in Sorbia|
Sorbia is NOT the same as Serbia ! Sorbia is a cultural minority in the very East of Germany. There are about 60,000 Sorbs in Germany and they came and settled in the Eastern parts of Brandenburg and Saxony during the migration period between 400 and 800 AD. They are still living in those areas and have a strong cultural identity. This includes their own flag, national anthem and language (Srbja is the Sorbian word for Sorbia btw.). With Stanislaw Tillich Saxony is even ruled by a Sorb.
The capital of the Sorbian area (Bautzen) does have a bilingual town sign, which you can see in the picture below.
They "just" offer a cheap version of this shirt, though. If you are interested in this shirt (which was produced for the player) you could try your luck contacting the shop on your own (or ask me ;) )
|Alderney vs. Jersey (1:4) | Muratti Vase 2006|
I really love the advertise print , too: Bavaria Holland Beer ? Is it in Bavaria or in Holland ? Or is it from Matt Holland from Ireland who opened a brewery in Bavaria ? Or is it just a beer from China which tries to find a fancy name that sells better than "Huangzhou China Beer" ? Many open questions. If anybody knows this strange beer please give me a hint where it comes from ;)
