Patches of Indigenous Confederations


Whenever we play in a competition or a tournament, we get patches to put on our jerseys. This time, however, each team's patch comes with a unique twist:
As you can see, our patch says 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup Champions (that's Landon's jersey before the last game) - it shows how we gained entry into the tournament. Each team's patch has the trophy from their confederation's continental championship...AFC, UEFA, and so on...Today we'll see the CONEMBOL patch when we play Brazil...

Italy can go one better, though. Check out their patch:
Pretty neat stuff, if you ask us. We've seen a fair amount of jersey patches in our days, but these ones probably take the cake. Certainly it'll make that Pirlo jersey that DeMerit traded for that much cooler...

So who swapped jerseys with Gattuso?

I think these are awesome, and would really like it if you could get pictures of all the patches.

Soon hell! With the tactics and lineup we had today I will be lucky to see us make a World Cup final in my lifetime.

Any idea where we can purchase one of these patches? I'm so proud of the boys' performance and would love to put one of these on the sleeve of my jersey.
