England’s former No. 1 goalkeeper and Tottenham captain Paul Robinson will bring the jersey to Vietnam on Friday, when he visits the country for a friendly tournament co-organized by the Ho Chi Minh City chapter of the Vietnam Youth Federation, a group of Vietnamese artists, the Tottenham Hotspur fan club, and the Newcastle United fan club.

The jersey carries autographs of several Hotspur superstars, including strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung Min; goalkeeper Hugo Lloris; and defenders Kyle Walker, Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen, Kieran Trippier, Erik Lamela, and Ben Davies.

It also comes with a certificate of authenticity from the football club.

Robinson will compete alongside Tottenham Hotspur fans against a football team comprised of Vietnamese artists and another comprised of Newcastle United supporters and members of sports marketing company Fun Sport at 1:00 pm on Saturday at Phu Nhuan Stadium in the namesake district in Ho Chi Minh City.

There he will officially hand over the Tottenham jersey and certificate to the individual or organization that wins the auction before Saturday’s matches.

Robinson, 43, made 375 appearances for Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Blackburn Rovers, and Burnley football clubs in the EPL.

The former football star also earned 41 England caps between 2003 and 2007. 

He played in the 2006 FIFA World Cup and 2008 UEFA Euro before retiring from international football in 2010 and professional club football in 2017.
