Israel 2008/10 home - Gal Alberman #4 (World Cup 2010 Qualification)

Israel 2008/10 home shirt, match issued to and signed by defensive midfielder Gal Alberman #4, for Israel's first World Cup 2010 qualifying match, at home vs. Switzerland on September 6, 2008 in Ramat Gan (2-2). While Alberman was called up and the shirt was issued to him for the match, he ended up picking up a knock and was not included in the matchday squad. This is was the first time that Israel wore an adidas kit in a competitive match.

This shirt is historic as this match was the first time ever that the Israel national team played with player names on the back. It was only done once in this match, as they would only start playing with names regularly starting from the World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign 4 years later.
