United States Men's National Soccer Team

The United States men's national soccer team represents the United States in international soccer competition and is controlled by the United States Soccer Federation. Though soccer has not traditionally had a high profile in American sporting life, the sport has steadily grown in popularity since the 1970s.

The team is, according to the FIFA World Rankings, ranked 14th in the world and first in CONCACAF and has appeared in the last six FIFA World Cups, including hosting the 1994 edition.

The team's best finish in the FIFA World Cup came in the inaugural 1930 tournament where it finished third. More recently, it finished fourth in the 1995 Copa América, reached the quarterfinals of the 2002 World Cup, and took second place in the 2009 Confederations Cup. The United States has won the CONCACAF Gold Cup four times in ten tournaments, second only to Mexico.


Since their first unofficial game against Canada, the uniforms have featured white tops with blue shorts. In 1950, the US adopted a "Peru" style kit by putting a diagonal stripe across their shirts. The stripe has been featured on "third" kits for 2003, 2004, and 2006, as well as on the current 2010 home and away uniforms. Adidas was the uniform provider for the United States from 1984 until 1994. Since 1995, Nike has been the uniform supplier.
