Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been prepared for Ziege in the Euro 2004 Group D match against Holland played at Estádio do Dragão, Porto on the 15th June '04. This was the 'Group of Death' and the biggest match in it with the two great rivals going head-to-head in the first round of games, so much history and a glorious occasion. Holland had the star names and were the favourites but never rule out the Germans who had reached the 2002 World Cup Final. The match was a gruelling contest, Germany took the lead on the half hour mark through Frings and it looked like the victory would be theirs until star striker Ruud van Nistelrooy superbly swivelled to turn home a beautiful volley with only 9 minutes left to play. 1-1 was the final score and Germany would eventually finish 3rd of the Group ending his adventure in Portugal. Ziege was an unused substitution for this match and would not make an appearance in the competition. The left back ended his international career having represented Germany 72 times between 1993-2004.
