English translation:wear the team colours
Explanation:
Literally, this means to wear a uniform or strip, but in this context it has a wider sense of representing the team in a match. There is probably more than one way of dealing with this, depending on the overall style. The example sentence could perhaps be translated by:
"Kutluay is now the player to have made the most appearances in his team colours".
