Venezuela 2019-20 Home (RONDON #23) Jersey/Shirt

£24.99

This is a Givova Venezuela national team 2019-20 home jersey featuring the name and number of star striker Salomón Rondón.

Venezuela’s national team has traditionally been one of the weaker teams in CONMEBOL and has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup. Their lack of success is largely due to the immense strength of their opponents in the South American region as well as the lesser popularity of football in Venezuela, with baseball and basketball often being considered the most popular sports in the country. In recent years, Venezuela has continually improved, with this shown in their strong performances in the Copa America over the past decade, highlighted by a 4th place finish in the 2011 tournament as well as an all-time FIFA ranking of 25 achieved in November 2019.

Salomón Rondón is one of the greatest players in Venezuelan football history, having had a prolific career at both club and international level. He has played in some of Europe’s strongest leagues, having had stints in the Spanish La Liga, the Russian Premier League and also in the English Premier League. After being named as Newcastle United’s player of the year in the 2018-19 season, Rondón was signed by Dalian Professional and played two seasons before being loaned out to Russian powerhouse CSKA Moscow. In August 2021, Rondón returned to the English Premier League, signing with Everton on a free transfer, reuniting with his former Newcastle and Dalian Pro manager Rafael Benítez. The 32-year-old is the all-time leading scorer for the Venezuela national team, with 31 goals from 82 international matches since making his debut in 2008.
