Back in August, the 2022 World Cup jerseys for the U.S. men’s national team were believed to have been leaked.

A large portion of the soccer world that saw them, including USMNT players Tim Weah and Weston McKennie, thought they were terrible and hoped that the leak was a mistake.

One person commented, “These look like they’re going to debut on the clothing rack at Marshalls.”

Another fan wrote, “The white one looks like a half-finished defective shirt sold at TJ Maxx for $4.99 and the blue one looks like something a 4 year old made after watching a Blippi Tie-Dye video.”

On Thursday, Nike revealed the actual USMNT kits for the World Cup and… well… it turns out that the leak was accurate. And soccer fans still hate them.

“The bold, redesigned 2022 football team collections highlight Nike’s culture of innovation and celebrate the youthful diversity and rich cultures of Nike federations,” Nike wrote in its announcement.

Nike added, “The 2022 USA collection serves as a symbol of national pride and draws inspiration from the United States’ diverse and storied sport legacy.

“The iconic U.S. uniform design cues include bold stripes, an enlarged center crest akin to basketball jerseys, double Swooshes on the sleeves reminiscent of those used on American football jerseys, the unique shoulder and sleeve cut-and-sew construction and pattern of a hockey jersey, and timeless block lettering.

“Subtle details, like “States United” on the inner back of the shirt, add depth to the story of unity and togetherness while the ice-dying technique used on the away kit create a vibrant pattern to celebrate diversity and youth.”

American soccer fans, almost universally, were definitely not feeling these new USMNT World Cup kits

Here’s an idea…

These would also work…

The 2022 World Cup begins on Nov. 20 in Qatar. Should be fun.
