Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Zemlinkskis during a Euro 2004 Group D match against the Netherlands played at Estadio Municipal de Braga on 23rd June 2003. This was the first ever European Champions the side had qualified for, after finishing second in the group and then defeating Turkey 3-2 on aggregate in the play-off round. They were drawn in the 'Group of Death' against Czech Republic, Germany and Netherlands, losing their first match 1-0 against the Czechs, before securing a surprise 0-0 draw against the Germans. Their final match was against Holland, which saw the Dutch side cruise to a 3-0 victory with a van Nistelrooy double in the first half followed by a late goal from substitute Makaay to round things off. Zemlinkskis played the full match, as he did in both other group games, with the side finishing bottom of the group with 1 point. The former Latvian Footballer of the Year amassed 105 caps between 1992-2005, scoring 12 goals. This white design is the rarest shirt of Euro 2004 given that a replica version of it was not produced and it was only worn in this one match against the Dutch
