MOST COMMENTED

[USA] The U.S. national team unveiled its new Nike home uniform that echoes the uniform worn during the 1950 World Cup when it defeated England, 1-0, in one of the biggest upsets in the history of soccer.

The new home jersey, which will debut when the USA takes on the Czech Republic in East Hartford, Conn. on May 25, is white with a tonal grey sash across the front of the right shoulder to the left side, and includes an obsidian blue round-neck collar.

The jersey is entirely constructed with fabric recycled polyester from plastic bottles and features improved Nike Dri-FIT fabric, now 13 percent lighter than previous Nike kits, which helps to quickly evaporate moisture and keep players dry.

Other elements:

-- On the back of the jersey’s neck is a graphic that reads "USA."

-- Inside the neck is a graphic of a coiled rattlesnake.

-- Inside the jersey, on the back of the gold-outlined U.S. Soccer crest over the heart, there is a similar coiled rattlesnake, accompanied by "DTOM" which stands for "Don’t Tread on Me," a rallying cry adopted by passionate U.S. fans.
