Independiente Santa Fe buy shirts from street vendor after forgetting kit

A football team was forced to play in knock-off replica shirts after forgetting its away kit.

Columbian side Independiente Santa Fe had to buy the shirts from a street vendor outside the stadium to make up for the error.

An official was sent out to buy counterfeit versions of the shirts – at around €4.66 each – before drawing the numbers on the back with a red marker.

They were playing away at Boyaca Chico, from the neighbouring province of Boyaca.

The plight of Independiente, who had their home kit with them, was not helped by Boyaca Chico, who reportedly refused to switch into their own reserve kit, to avoid a colour clash.

Despite the mix-up Independiente Santa Fe won the match 2-0.
