This is a Starter jacket for the US Olympic Soccer team. Even though Soccer isn't the most popular sport in America, U.S. soccer team apparel is always popular because the US flag is one of the most recognized and respected symbols in the world. The US national soccer team hadn't had much success until hosting the 1994 World Cup where they lost to Brazil in the round of 16. Since then they've qualified for every World Cup and in 2009 they had their biggest achievement by reaching the final of the FIFA Confederations Cup by beating a high-powered Spain team but losing to Brazil 3-2. At the 2012 Summer Olympics the U.S. Women's teams won the Gold medal beating a strong Japanese team and having a controversial win versus Canada. This jacket is dated back to the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
