Review: US National Team Jersey Vs Harimau Malaya National Team Jersey

Looking forward for the next world cup on 2014 hosted in Brazil.

I am a Malaysian but I have high expectation for my tanah tumpah darah-ku country, the United States of America (USA).

THE 2012/13 US REPLICA JERSEY: COMFORT AND CLUB PRIDE




The 2012/13 US Replica Men's Soccer Jersey represents tradition and success with bold colors, unique style details and soft, breathable fabric.

Red stripes across the jersey, looks like a pirate uniform. Not sure how Nike US come up with such design. I guess when seeing millions of people with this red and white stripes of shirt in a stadium will resemble the US national flag.

I came across the US training jersey in Paragon Mall, Bangkok Thailand. However, the size is just not so asian. S size is similar to asian L. Still hunting for the original jersey when travelling abroad.

MALAYSIA NATIONAL TEAM KIT 2012/13

Check out the Malaysia national team jersey.


PRINTED ON THE INSIDE OF THE JERSEY IS THE WAR-CRY “TANAH TUMPAHNYA DARAHKU”, AN EXCERPT FROM THE MALAYSIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM WHICH AIMS TO INSTILL HUNGER AND DESIRE FOR VICTORY. TO COMPLETE THE LOOK, THE “JALUR GEMILANG” IS ALSO FEATURED ON THE NEW KIT, PROVIDING PLAYERS AND FANS A SENSE OF PRIDE WHEN DONNING IT.

Really nice -- good job Nike Malaysia. I can see most Malaysians are proud with this jersey. Even its not football season, I still see people walking around with this black and yellow strip jersey.

Do I own one? Nope!
Not a big fan of the term "Harimau Malaya". The Malaya word to be specific. Malaya means tanah semenanjung, it doesn't include Borneo (Sabah and Sarawak).

Why its hard to find US national items here in Malaysia. I can always see other World Cup country jersey sold in Malaysia Nike Store like Brazil, Italy, Korea. Not fair!
