I Believe That Wu Will Win
By ESPN Music
The Wu-Tang Clan soccer jersey features flags of the nations competing in the World Cup, all with a Wu-Tang twist -- the group's stylized W logo.
The Wu-Tang Clan did not send a team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
No, they sent all 32.
The influential hip-hop group's fashion and accessory arm, Wutang Brand, is offering a Wu-Tang soccer jersey this summer.
We think it could have global appeal, and here's why: The jersey, which comes in black and white or full color, features the various flags of the nations competing for glory in Brazil.
But those flags all come with a Wu-Tang twist -- the use of the band's stylized W logo in place of key elements in each flag. They're all clever, but the Wu-Tang style Brazilian flag is particularly inspired.
If $66 for a poly mesh soccer jersey isn't your style, there's additional offerings with the same design, including hats and T-shirts.
Yet more conclusive proof that it's still a Wu-Tang world -- the rest of us just live here.
