Seychelles 2015 Home (#9- HENRIETTE) Jersey/Shirt
This is an Adidas Seychelles national team 2015 home jersey featuring the number of star midfielder Archille Henriette.
Archille Henriette has been one of the top footballers in the Seychelles for over a decade now having had a prolific career at both club and international level. He has played for local club La Passe FC since 2008 and has consistently been voted amongst the leading players in the Seychelles’ Footballer of the Year award throughout his career, with the 33-year-old winning the award in 2011 & 2013. Henriette has been a key member of the Seychelles national team squad since his debut in 2006, playing a total of 39 matches and scoring 6 goals for ‘The Pirates’.
Seychelles are traditionally one of the weakest national teams in African football and the small island nation with a population of only 94,000 has achieved little success since becoming a FIFA member in 1986. The strongest period for the team was in the mid-2000s, where they reached an all-time high FIFA ranking a 129 and achieved a famous victory against their far more fancied opponents of Zimbabwe. Arguably the greatest achievement for the team nicknamed ‘The Pirates’ was their 2011 Indian Ocean Games title, where legendary striker Kevin Betsy led them to their maiden title as they defeated Mauritius in the final.
