These excellent footballers make the national team strong and powerful. There is no doubt that everything about them is popular with their loyal fans. For example, the sale of the top player Messi’s football shirt was the first one in 2015.
This newly released home shirt is classic white in color. The light blue sleeves show the unique design in contrast to the body part. It features a modern V-collar design with a red stripe embroidered on the collar. The red stripe is also placed on both sides of the shirt to make players cool and comfortable. The federation badge is printed on the chest showing the long history of American football. “USA” knitted on the back of the collar and “1 NATION, 1 TEAM” sewn on the right and left sleeves reflect the idea America initiates.
Inside of the shirt, there is also the word “USA” surrounded by these slogans “We can”, “We will”, “We are” in order to encourage players to perform well, which are from a fan’s Twitter. Now, they are hanging on the wall of national team’s dressing room.
Both sides of the jersey have red stripes which extend down and connect with the stripes on both sides of white shorts so as to provide good air permeability for players in motion.
The advanced Nike AeroSwift technology is used to make players remove interference and concertante on the game. Additionally, the shirt becomes lighter and more comfortable.
Nike’s environmental awareness has been reflected. For example, the shirt is made from recycled polyester showing the sustainability and reducing the impact on environment as well.
