Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Womé during a friendly match against Denmark played at Idraetsparken, Copenhagen on 17th May 2002. One of the most controversial football 'shirts' of all-time, the legendary Cameroon vest. The side first wore the shirt at the 2002 AFCON which they subsequently went on to win. They were also planning on wearing it at the World Cup, however the media storm that was brewing about The Indomitable Lions wearing vests caused FIFA to intervene and force the team to attach special sleeves to make them into 'shirts'. This match was a warm up before the tournament, and was the penultimate time the side would wear the vest design. It finished in a 2-1 defeat for Cameroon with a dubious penalty, tucked away by Tomasson, being the difference between the sides. Womé played the full match in defence, as he became an important member of the squad during this period. He earned 69 caps for the side between 1998-2009, scoring 5 goals, including featuring in all but one games of their AFCON triumph and all matches at the World Cup as the side failed to make it out of the group stages. A real piece of football shirt history, when the design was used after the World Cup in 2003 it remained with the sleeves attached and it may be that the 'vest' will never be seen again on the international scene
