Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Geiger in the 1986 World Cup Qualification Group 6 match against Ireland played at Lansdowne Road, Dublin on the 2nd June '85. Switzerland had started the campaign well in an extremely tough group beating Norway and Denmark and holding the Soviet Union to a draw in Bern but they had been suffered a setback in Moscow in the return fixture going down 4-0 in the game before this. The wheels came off further here against the Irish who cruised to a 3-0 triumph on a fine summers day with goals from Stapleton, Grealish and Sheedy. Geiger played the full match and had a remarkable international career which spanned 16 years, captaining the side at the '94 World Cup and Euro '96, winning an incredible 112 caps in total
