Shouldn't those be bronze?

Those look good, but I think it's a bit cocky. Hopefully, someone knocks 'em off their pedestal.

Well thats being a good American! :P

I don't think you should root against your home nation just because they're uniforms suck.

Anyway, they look sharp but it would have been better if they were white, and the white stripe on the right shoulder was red, and I wish they (and the mens team) would have a red clash, that would look sick!

And they played all their games in a pouring rain...

Ho-ho! Sepp strikes again!

These jerseys are nasty. Nasty bad, not nasty good. Since when was gold a part of the American color scheme?

Since around 1980?

The United States is wearing gold because there are too many top teams whose primary colors are red or white. (Canada, Germany, Norway, etc.). It's the same reason why the U.S. men's national team is wearing royal blue and not navy at the Copa America. The organizing body of the tournament (in this case, FIFA), made it so.

These jerseys have a little bit of Fulham in them, with those stripes on top of the sleeves.

That being said, those are not the most unique uniforms in U.S. soccer history ... think 1994.

I think you're going to see Our Women going back to red after the World Cup.

And thank God the change strip isn't the pink Komen jersey or our team would be a bunch of freakin' Easter eggs.

Ugh, these are really arrogant. I think we'd be best served to not pound our chest at every opportunity when it comes to the world scale of things- even in something as innocuous as women's soccer.

All I can say is that they gold jersey looks pretty nice on Carli Lloyd...who, btw, is even cuter in person. That being said...as a straight 26-year old male, I may just have to pick up white version of the jersey before they come to Hartford next month. Yes, I know, it's a chick jersey... :D
