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

Andreas Ivanschitz’s Adidas Predator match worn boots. This special made to
measure boots were worn during the season 2013/2014. Both boots are signed
and personalized with “NAHLA”, “ILIA” and a flag of Austria. Ivanschitz made his
debut for Austria in a February 2003 friendly match against Greece, coming on as
a substitute for Markus Weissenberger. He was also a participant at the UEFA
Euro 2008. He has earned 67 caps for Austria and has scored 12 goals. He
captained Austria for the first time when he was only 19 years old. Ivanschitz
wears shirt number 10 in the national team and his position is in the midfield,
preferably in an attacking position. Ivanschitz is considered the David Beckham
of Austria, despite favouring his left foot; still the name stuck because of his
exposure to the local media and popularity with the fans. In September 2009 he
was abandoned by Austria's coach, Dietmar Constantini, who has said he will
never call up the playmaker. He was called up again to the national team after
Constantini stepped down as coach on 13 September 2011.
