Top 5 Gold Cup Customized Jerseys
#5 DeAndre Yedlin (USA) – With unmatched speed and dangerous skills on the flanks, DeAndre Yedlin is becoming one of the US MNT’s most dangerous players. Some fans wanted to see more of the Tottenham Hotspur player during the Gold Cup but know the 22-year-old still has time to leave his mark on the team.
#4 Giovani dos Santos (Mexico) – One of Mexico’s lethal attacking midfielders, who had added buzz with his recent transfer to the Los Angeles Galaxy as a Designated Player, he is the 1st of 3 El Tri Colores players on the list. Scored 1 goal on the way to the championship and will no doubt look forward to playing the U.S., a team he has had success against.
#3 Carlos Vela (Mexico) – Vela added 2 goals for Mexico. After rejecting call-ups to the national team for 3 years, Vela returned in November 2014. He missed the final due to yellow card accumulation but if he continues to accept call-ups will be a force.
#2 Andres Guardado (Mexico) – Mexico’s captain was clutch in taking his team to the title. The winger scored 6 goals on the campaign including the 1 game winning PK against Costa Rica in the quarterfinal and the 2 PK’s in the semifinal against Panama (all of them controversial). He then added the 1st goal in the final against Jamaica.
#1 Clint Dempsey (USA) – Dempsey took home the Golden Boot with 7 goals but could not keep the title with the Stars and Stripes. The forward was always a danger to score when he took the field and provided some key goals. It is not surprising that his jersey was the most popular as fans of the US MNT and Seattle Sounders do not hesitate to show the love for Duece.
