Kyrgyzstan 2023 Home Jersey/Shirt
This is a Joma Kyrgyzstan national team home jersey as worn by 'Krasnaya Sbornaya (the Red Team)' throughout the 2023 period.
Until recently Kyrgyzstan were one of the minnows of Asian football, however over the past few years their performances have improved dramatically, culminating in their qualification for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. Prior to this, the team has never achieved much international success and reached an all-time low FIFA ranking of 201 in March 2013. By April 2018 their ranking had climbed to an incredible 75 and a second-place finish in their group in the third round of qualifiers saw Kyrgyzstan qualify for their first ever Asian Cup. At the tournament, they performed admirably and surprised many by reaching the Round of 16. They opened with narrow losses to China and South Korea before defeating Philippines 3-1. Kyrgyzstan then faced hosts UAE in the next round and gave them a huge scare by forcing the match into extra time, however they eventually lost 3-2 after conceding a controversial penalty in the 103rd minute. Kyrgyzstan continued their recent development by once again qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup, securing a place in the tournament after finishing runners-up in the third round of qualifiers following victories against Singapore and Myanmar.
