Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been issue to or worn by #18 in a friendly match against the Netherland at the Parc des Princes, Paris on the 10th February 1999. There was nothing to choose between the evenly matched sides as the game finished in a tight goalless draw. Pauleta was brought on in the 90th minute, as a last ditch attempt by Humberto Coelho to steal a winner. This was towards the beginning of the strikers international career but he went on to earn 88 caps, with a great return ratio of 47 goals, before retiring in 2006. He also enjoyed a great domestic career, notably in France where he played nearly 200 times for PSG
