Home / International Soccer / Nike Donovan Hero Tee Review


The USMNT is ready to get some success stories rolling in 2011 after some relatively disappointing games (see Spain loss with even Fernando Torres scoring). They’ll be led by perhaps one of the most storied players in the country’s history, the continually balding but ever amazing Landon Donovan. The 3rd highest capped player in USMNT history is only 29 and shows no signs of slowing down soon. In addition to this honor, he’s the all time leading scorer and assist provider in team history and a 7-time Honda Player of the Year award. So…how exactly do you get to cheer for one of the country’s most celebrated soccer players? Nike has made it easy for you with the new Donovan Hero Tee.

This 100% cotton tee in all a bit plain but couldn’t do a better job of commemorating the man wearing the the USA jersey. Featuring Landon’s iconic number 10 on the front, the true sign of a play-maker, this replica t-shirt is white and closely mirrors the Home kit the boys will be wearing this summer. Though it rids itself of that gray diagonal stripe across the chest (I’m not complaining), the shirt does feature the same crest, Nike swoosh, and number styling as in the much more expensive replica jersey. If you’re on a budget and love Landon, this is really the way to go. The back features Donovan’s name in carefully crafted lettering and looks great. A big number 10 also lines the back of the shirt and fits in perfectly with the rest of the shirt.

At under $20, this Donovan Hero Tee is a great alternative to the home kit the squad will be using in upcoming games. If you’re on a budget and love Landon, get it. Now.
