TEAM South Korea SEASON(S) 2004
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY South Korea
MANUFACTURER Nike

This is the last shirt required for me to get all five of Nike's 2004 presentations boxed shirts. Unlike the Portugal, Brazil and Netherlands shirts which were limited editions of 5000, the Korean shirt was further limited to 2500. This one carries the name and squad number of Ji Sung Park who went onto play for Manchester United. I have to confess that I thought it was a rather cynical marketing ploy on Man U's part when they signed Park intended to sell shirts in Korea but in fact he proved to be a very valuable player, especially in big games.
