Super John McGinn

John McGinn is one of Scotland’s best players and has been a key figure to Steve Clarke’s national team’s major resurgence.

In 2012, John would start his career at St Mirren where he would make his professional debut against Celtic in a 5-0 defeat. Before long he would have moved to the east coast to join Hibernian for £1million, where he would be selected for his first international cap at the age of 21. This came as a 1-0 win against Denmark where McGinn was selected as Player of the Match.

Fast forward to today and McGinn has racked up an impressive 54 caps where he has played under managers such as Gordon Strachan, Alex McLeish and Steve Clarke with the latter helping him to achieve his 16 goal tally for Scotland by playing him in a more advanced role on the pitch compared to his deeper role at Aston Villa, which shows his midfield versatility.

This jersey comes from Scotland’s most recent success against Spain where Scott McTominay bagged himself a brace in a 2-0 win at Hampden. McGinn was substituted by Lewis Ferguson after running the midfield for 83 minutes. McGinn was rated an 8/10 this game with only McTominay ranking higher. As a whole, this game will go down as a historic win for Scotland and will be a massive boost for qualifying for Euro 2024 in Germany.

European International Tops

Andreas Möller – Germany 96′

A legend with Die Mannschaft, Andreas Möller has won it all from the World Cup in 1990 to the Champions League in 1997. After starting his career in 1885 with Eintracht Frankfurt, he would move to Borussia Dortmund for just over one million euros. This would be his first spell at Borussia Dortmund where he would leave after his contract expired only winning the DFB-Pokal during his two years before returning to Frankfurt. After leaving Dortmund, Möller would be called up for the Italia 90 World Cup which West Germany would go on to win in the final against Argentina. This would be the last tournament for West Germany before it would be reunified with East Germany.

After leaving Frankfurt for a second time, Möller would this time end up in Italy with a Juventus team that would consist of Roberto Baggio, Paolo Di Canio, David Platt and Antonio Conte. In his first season with The Old Lady Andreas would win the UEFA Cup, beating his previous employers, Borussia Dortmund, 3-1 at the Westfalenstadion and 3-0 at the Stadio delle Alpi with Moller scoring in the second leg.

Juventus came second in the Serie A and quarterfinalists in the UEFA Cup so with Möller being trophyless he would return to Germany with a second stint at Borussia Dortmund where he would go on to win two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League. During the 1994/95 first round of the UEFA Cup, Moller scored the only goal of the first leg when Borussia Dortmund played Motherwell which is where Dortmund would first spot future signing Paul Lambert.

Where Möller is mostly remembered however would be when he scored the decisive penalty against England in the semi-final of Euro 96 as Germany would go on to lift the trophy. Over his career, the German international would be capped eighty-five times for his country, scoring twenty-nine goals.

Euro 96 would be where this Germany home top would be showcased in front of the world. This top has so much detail throughout it, showing off different sizes of the German Football Association logo in vertical stripes. The collar, cuffs and stars above the badge are all in the colours of the Germany flag with a small flag in between in buttons of the shirt. The shirt would not be complete if it were not for the iconic adidas stripes running down each sleeve with the black stripes contrasting along the white shirt. The number seven is not featured on the front of this jersey as this top was used in a German friendly rather than a major tournament as shown in the the photos above.
