Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to Gladstone for the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in Holland. Brazil were the holders after triumphing in the UAE in 2003 and made it out of their group in top spot, beating Switzerland and South Korea after drawing their opening game with Nigeria. Syria were seen off in the Round of 16 before a thriller with Germany in which Rafinha scored an extra-time winner. Messi was on the scoresheet in the Semi Final with Argentina and Pablo Zabaleta broke the side's hearts with a 93rd minute winner to send them through to the Final. Gladstone was a rock at the back and played in four of Brazil's six matches and also scored in the only goal in the victory against the Swiss. The defender's form earned him a move to Juventus later in the year although he would never actually make an appearance for the bianconeri. The shirt is a spare that does not feature the tournament sleeve patch
