Fake soccer jersey in the match

The story is from Liga Premier de Mexico on 14th January 2023 where Leviatan FC showed up with a new jersey. What had happened was that the team had all of their official kit theft. They were without their kit mere hours before the match and they were scratching their head to find a solution in this dire situation. If it was a tier 1 team, it would have been such an easy fix as they have kits in bulk. But, genius minds in Leviatan came up with an insane solution.

They somehow arranged a bootlegged version of the 2021 Inter Milan jersey. Although the improvisation was quite creative, these jerseys are very different. But it was either to forfeit the match or this. The team decided to pull this stunt off and played the whole match. This stroke of a genius, however, didn’t go unnoticed by the League and they decided to intervene.
