What is your favourite football shirt?

There’s so many, the 2002 Kappa Kombat shirt for Italy was a favourite as it felt like a game changer. The France Marinere away – UNAM Puma’s have had some amazing ones. But I’ll go with Cameroon’s sleeveless design from 2002, really blew me away when I saw it, and I guess it’s still the most unique shirt to have been attempted to be worn at a world cup!

What is your favourite ever goal?

My favourite player ever is Christian Vieri, so I was the happiest kid alive when he moved to Inter. His goal against Parma in 1999 will always be my favourite, such a cracker!
