Benfica Rui Costa T-shirt at Blind Religion
This is one of my all time favourite players and his prime was my time to be dedicated to football. We are talking about Benfica’s prodigal son and we’re talking Rui Costa. Now I am biased but for me this Rui Costa t-shirt is the best football t-shirt around. It has the bright red colours of Portugal and his name in bold white writing as he rushes off to celebrate a goal. Portugal has had many stars come through their national side but few with more grace and quality than Costa.
I can recall the amazing ability of Luis Figo in his Barcelona and then Real Madrid days and when he pulled on the national shirt he was the most important player. I recall the subtle and controlling presence in midfield of the sublime Paulo Sousa spreading passes across the pitch and threading little through balls to forwards. I understand than Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the best player in the world but for me without doubt my favourite was the graceful Rui Costa and this is why I love this t-shirt.
