Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Frings in the friendly match against Holland at De Kuip, Rotterdam on 17th August 2005. With the side automatically qualifying for the 2006 World Cup as the host nation this was just one of many warm-up matches in preparation for the tournament. Chelsea winger Arjen Robben opened the scoring minutes into the game firing a trademark left footed shot past Oliver Kahn and into the top corner. Robben scored his second of the night at the start of the second half to put the home side up 2-0. Captain Michael Ballack pulled one back for the Germans minutes later heading home from a Sebastian Deisler corner. Die Mannschaft then found a late equaliser through Schalke striker Gerald Asamoah. Frings started the game but came off for Thomas Hitzlsperge on 66 minutes as Jurgen Klinsmann brought fresh legs on in search of a game-tying goal. The Bundesliga legend earned 79 caps for his national side between 2001-09 scoring 10 goals. Frings spent the majority of his career in Germany enjoying time with Alemannia Aachen, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and two separate spells with Werder Bremen before later moving to Canada with MLS side Toronto FC.
