Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Maciulevičius in the 1994 World Cup Qualification Group 3 match against Ireland played at Lansdowne Road, Dublin on the 8th September '93. Back in '92 a Cork sportswear firm had to help out Albania after they arrived in Ireland without a kit and they were incredibly called back into action again for this fixture when Lithuania came to Dublin with a kit that clashed with the hosts. Emerald Active Wear, an Adidas franchise, got the call at 05:30 and with just minutes to spare managed to produce 18 shirts for the Lithuanian team to wear in this one match only. This was Lithuania's first ever World Cup Qualifying campaign following the restoration of their independence after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Rinktine went into this their final match of the campaign with an impressive 7 points to their name but they were unable to add to that tally here losing out 2-0 to Ireland who were chasing a place at the Final's. Maciulevičius came on as a 69th minute substitute for only his second appearance, the midfielder went on to represent his country 38 times in total
