Central African Republic 2021-22 Home Jersey/Shirt
This is a Macron Central African Republic national team home jersey as worn by 'Les Fauves' (The Wild Beasts) through the 2021-22 period.
Traditionally the Central African Republic were one of the weaker national teams in Africa, however despite continued political instability in the country, they have improved considerably over the past decade. Their FIFA ranking has risen from 202 in 2010 to 111 in 2019 and recent results have displayed their growing potential. They have never qualified for a major tournament, with their greatest achievement being winning the CEMAC Cup in 2009, which sparked the rise of the team. In October 2021, during their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign, the team pulled off one of the biggest upsets in African football in recent years, defeating a star-studded Nigeria side 1-0 in Lagos thanks to a 91st minute goal. Their current squad largely comprises of players based in Europe and hopes are high that they will soon qualify for their maiden AFCON tournament.
