A great CSKA Sofia home shirt by Uhlsport of the team’s classic red kit, with all the markings of a match worn UEFA cup piece. The number 27 and name Lanzaat (For Dutch defender Quido Lanzaat) are both player size and screen printed on, while the UEFA cup badge is applied to the right sleeve. Also, the Uhlsport logo on the right sleeve is wearing off a bit. The shirt’s fabric is of standard quality.

CSKA were eliminated from the UEFA cup by Toulouse FC in a heartbreaking first round tie in the 2007-08 competition as a stoppage time goal sealed the victory on away goals for the French side–below is an image of Denny Lanzaat in a short-sleeved version of this shirt, as well as one of a CSKA player wearing an example of this shirt in action. It was purchased at the CSKA club shop for a modest price while on a visit to the team’s Balgarska Armia Stadium during the summer–I suppose they were selling off excess shirts in a bid for extra revenue.
