U.S. Soccer Federation Releases New Uniform Design
CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. home jersey for the World Cup resembles a golf shirt.
The U.S. Soccer Federation released the Nike design Monday and it has a white polo collar. The collar and the sleeves have red trim, and the shorts and socks also are white.
The uniform will be used by the men's and women's teams, and it will be worn in a game for the first time in Wednesday's exhibition against Ukraine in Larnaca, Cyprus.
Midfielders Michael Bradley and Mix Diskerud, and defender Tim Ream have withdrawn from the roster, and defender Jonathan Spector has been added.
Bradley stayed with FC Toronto for what the U.S. Soccer Federation said was treatment of a minor issue ahead of its Major League Soccer opener at Seattle on March 15. Clint Dempsey reported to the Sounders for two days after training in Frankfurt, Germany, after completing his two-month loan from Seattle to Fulham.
