ROBERTO BAGGIO 1994 FIFA WORLD CUP MATCH WORN ITALY JERSEY
The 1994 FIFA World Cup final was a soccer game that took place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, United States, on July 17th, 1994, to determine the winner of the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Brazil beat Italy 3-2 on penalties to claim their fourth World Cup title when the game finished 0-0 after extra time; this meant that Brazil surpassed Italy and Germany as the tournament's most successful nation.
It was the first, and to date, only World Cup final to be scoreless both in regular and extra time and to be decided by a penalty shoot-out. Silver Ball winner Roberto Baggio missed the decisive penalty for Italy. Brazil had previously beaten Italy in the 1970 final, marking the 1994 final as the second time that the same teams had met in two different World Cup finals, after Argentina and Germany met in 1986 and 1990. Played at 12:30 local time, this was the most recent World Cup final to be played in broad daylight.
The blue jersey was worn by Baggio in a match during the 1994 FIFA World Cup. "R.BAGGIO" and #10 on back and front are in felt material. "Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio" crest is embroidered on the chest. Original diadora tag attached in collar.
