Ultra rare Mitre Delta Cosmic Football League Matchball hand signed in permanent black marker after the famous European Championship Qualifier at the Cardiff Arms Park on 5th June, 1991. The mighty Germans had a year earlier won their third World Cup so this was a huge international upset and one of the greatest footballing nights in Welsh football. Legendary striker Ian Rush’s memorable second-half winner proved the difference but goalkeeper Neville Southall’s heroics in the Wales goal earned the Welsh their first ever win over the Germans.
Autographs include goalscorer Ian Rush, Man of the Match Neville Southall, Mark Hughes, Dean Saunders, Kevin Ratcliffe, Peter Nicholas, Andy Melville, Paul Bodin, Barry Horne, Eric Young, Colin Pascoe, Park Pembridge, Gareth Hall and Tony Norman.
The football is in excellent condition. It fully inflates and holds the air which is remarkable considering it is nearly 30 years old.
An amazing opportunity to own a piece a Welsh footballing history. Please note: we are unsure whether the football was actually used in the game or a spare however it matches with video footage/ photographs from the game. COA included.
