One week from today, the U.S men’s national team will take on Ghana at the World Cup in Brazil. It’s one of three guaranteed American matches as the U.S. tries to fight its way out of Group G and into the second stage. If you’re like me, you’re thinking about how to best represent the U.S. at whatever watch party you’re going to attend. Anything red, white or blue will suffice, obviously, but to me nothing says America more than a simple, classic T-shirt. Here are a few suggestions:
- An American-made product by an American-made company to support an American-made team. No-brainer | The Old Try: USA
- If you’ve been to a U.S. men’s game, or any number of MLS teams’ games, there’s one chant that the fans recite that sticks out above all others. This is the one.

- Simple and straightforward. Bonus points for being 100 percent cotton and slim fit, though those of us with some gut will have to suck in a bit || U.S. Soccer Store: Nike USA Core Type Tee
- A couple more I’ve seen around the web: Another simple USA look … Land of the Free, Home of the Brave … Cool design, though out-dated names … One of best U.S. goals in history
