Too bad our model Danielle Fornarelli didn’t just drive one into the back of the net during a World Cup match. If she did, she might be inclined to make like a soccer player and strip off her shirt in celebration. For now, we’re more than happy to see her model the brand-new U.S. Men’s National Team 2010 World Cup home kit, released today by Nike. The World Cup kicks off on June 11 in South Africa, the first time ever an African nation has hosted the global competition.
Also for the first time, all of the national teams sponsored by Nike—including the U.S., Brazil, Portugal and the Netherlands—will be wearing jerseys made entirely from recycled polyester. Each one is produced from up to eight discarded plastic bottles sourced from landfill sites.
Good on ya, Nike, for looking out for the environment. And the jersey looks great—especially on Danielle. Wouldn’t you agree?
