US National Team
In his most recent blog for ESPNFC, United States Men's National Team forward Jozy Altidore reflected on scoring against Jamaica last Friday while wearing custom made adidas boots paying tribute to Crew midfielder Kirk Urso, who passed away in August 2012. Altidore initially intended to wear the boots against Mexico at Crew Stadium on September 10, but was forced to miss the match due to yellow card accumulation.
"Personally, it was a special match for me. I was able to wear my custom adidas boots that paid tribute to Kirk Urso, my old friend and former youth teammate. And the fact I was able to score our second goal of the match in a pair of boots I will never wear again made it even more memorable."
The boots were raffled off to benefit the Jozy Altidore Foundation and the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund.
