In what is most certainly a good omen for tomorrow’s opening match, the USA thoroughly routed a strong Croatia shirt to take the 2006 Shirt Cup Presented By F.C. Camena ™. While the USA surely enjoyed a bit of a hometown advantage (I don’t imagine we had too many visitors here on the site from Zagreb over the weekend), given Croatia’s performance to date, the result was a bit of a surprise. Congrats, of course, also go to the folks in Oregon — to have the hometown shirt win an all-Nike final? Well played, indeed.
