News of the weird: The half-Mexico, half-USMNT jersey is a real thing | SIDELINE
So it actually exists. The world is a truly crazy place.
That's the gist of the feelings relayed by Instagram user ivanespnza who found the above
beauty/atrocity/masterpiece/abomination obviously fake Mexico national team jersey at a flea market in San Jose, Calif.
The creation is an ode to the events of October 15, 2013, when the US national team scored a dramatic late victory over Panama on the final day of World Cup qualifying to push Mexico one place higher in the CONCACAF standings and into a playoff place with one last chance of qualifying for Brazil.
El Tri have made very good on that opportunity presented to them by the USMNT, defeating New Zealand 5-1 in the first leg of the playoff.
We saw fan renderings floating around the Internet in the days following the game, but never thought it would come to this — seeing the thing in real life.
