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

Ivan Rakitić's Adidas Predator match worn boots. This special made to measure boots were
worn during the season 2008. Both boots are personalized with the name of his sister
"Nikol", the name of his brother "Dejan" and his shirt-nr. "10". 2008, Ivan Rakitić was added
to Croatia's squad for the Euro 2008 tournament in Austria and Switzerland, where he was
the second-youngest player. He made his first appearance at the tournament as a starter
against Germany, and eventually provided a shot which ricocheted off the post and allowed
teammate Ivica Olić to score the second goal in their 2-1 victory. Though playing a strong
role against Turkey in the quarter finals of the tournament, Rakitić went on to miss one of
the three unsuccessful penalties in the shootout, thus leading to a victory for Turkey. A
special thanks to Ivan Rakitić and his family for this fantastic present.
