Bastian Schweinsteiger’s Shinpads Have Definitely Seen Better Days… (Photo)

By Chris Wright

Before Monday evening’s last-16 World Cup tie between Germany and Algeria, Getty Images released a slew of photographs of both sides’ respective dressing rooms with the players’ kits and gear laid out neatly awaiting for their arrival.

While perusing the photos diligently, we couldn’t help but notice the state of Bastian Schweinsteiger’s shinpads…

Masking tape and biro? Come on Bastian, splash out on a new pair, son. You must have a few quid going spare!

While we’re on the subject, we also learned that Miroslav Klose’s custom shinnies look like he got them printed up at the Asda 24hr photo counter…

No need to thank Pies for this intriguing insight into the machinations of the Germany World Cup campaign – just forward your envelopes stuffed full of cash to us at the usual address…

    My guess is he’s had them since 3rd grade, hence the 3d on them.

  2. Joe says:

    My guess is that his grandfather bought them in England pre-decimalisation for thruppence. Hence the 3d on them.

    my guess is that it’s his squad #, hence the 31

    Don’t want to be a party pooper, but it says ’31’, not ‘3d’, guys.

    @ Sjakie
    Party pooper ;)

    We hadn’t even speculated as to what sort of glasses you have to wear to see them properly yet..
