Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to Boumsong for the Euro 2008 Group C match against Holland played at Stade de Suisse, Bern on the 13th June '08. France had been drawn in the 'Group of Death' alongside Italy, Romania and Holland. A 0-0 draw against Romania in their opening game was not the ideal result going into the next two showdowns and matters got worse with the Dutch in rampant mood. Kuyt put the Oranje ahead early on before van Persie and Robben turned on the style to put them 3-0 up, Henry pulled one back but Sneijder added extra gloss and confirmed the thrashing with a late fourth. Thuram and Gallas were the preferred centre back pairing and Boumsong sat this game out as an unused substitute, the Juventus defender did get called into action in Les Bleus final match after Abidal got sent off and they bowed out after a 2-0 defeat to Italy to make it a Euro's to forget for France. This was Boumsong's second Euro's experience after being in the squad for 2004 and the former Newcastle and Rangers star had also been to the 2006 World Cup, winning 27 caps in total
