Guinea-Bissau 2019 Home LONG-SLEEVE Jersey/Shirt
This is a Puma Guinea-Bissau national team home long-sleeve jersey as worn by the team throughout the 2019 period.
Guinea-Bissau’s national team were traditionally one of the weaker teams in the West African region and dropped to an all-time low FIFA ranking of 195 in early 2010. Since then however they have improved significantly, largely helped by their European-based diaspora, who make up almost their entire squad. In 2016, they shocked African football by securing qualification for AFCON 2017, their maiden appearance in a major tournament. To qualify, the ‘Djurtus’ needed to finish first in a tough group containing Congo, Zambia and Kenya, however a string of incredible performances saw them make it through. Despite not making past the group stage of AFCON 2017, they performed admirably and earned a point when they drew 1-1 with hosts Gabon. In 2019, they backed-up with feats of 2017 by qualifying for AFCON 2019, again finishing first in a difficult group and with a strong squad they are expected to continue to rise over the coming years.
