........player exklusiv worn / issued boots

Cristian Chivu’s Adidas match issued boots. This special made to measure boots
are signed and personalized with his shirt-nr. “26”. In 1999, Chivu was chosen to
represent the Romanian under-21 team and quickly made the step up to play for
the full side. He played for Romania in Euro 2000 and Euro 2008. Despite being
capped only four times prior to the Euro 2000, he started all four matches and
scored his first international goal. During the Euro 2008, he earned plaudits for
his performance, keeping previous World Cup champions Italy and runners-up
France at bay, despite being played in a less familiar role as a holding midfielder.
He captained Romania through World Cup qualification but they failed to make
the play-offs, finishing fifth in their group. On 21 May 2011, Chivu announced his
retirement from the national team.
