We caught up with football shirt designer, illustrator and author of Football Shirt Concepts, Angelo Trofa to talk; wearing Italy football shirts for a month straight, Cameroon sleeveless tops and Vieri signing for Inter Milan.
What was your first football shirt?
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!
