During Jersey Week, we’ve discussed several aspects of the world of jerseys with American soccer. We’ve highlighted the best and worst as well as the jersey numbers that are our favorites. Now, we venture to some of the stars that we consider among the best the United States has ever produced.

Some of the best in USMNT and USWNT history are players who have taken both programs to uncharted heights. They’ve dominated World Cups, Gold Cups, Olympics, and even Confederations Cups and Copa Américas. However, when you think of some of these players, what jersey do you specifically associate with them? It could be the one they were wearing at what you would consider their finest moment. It could be a memorable goal that is one of the best in U.S. Soccer history. It could be one that holds sentimental value to you, like your first jersey purchase or what they wore at the first match you attended. Whatever that is, take the following players below and tell us what jersey you specifically associate with that player:

  • Clint Dempsey
  • Landon Donovan
  • DaMarcus Beasley
  • Claudio Reyna
  • Oguchi Onyewu
  • Alex Morgan
  • Abby Wambach
  • Michelle Akers
  • Christie Rampone
  • Kristine Lilly

Hit the comments and take one player, several, or all. Let us know what jersey you specifically associate with that player (you can use the same jersey for multiple players) and tell us why!
