As we inch closer to the 2010 World Cup, which is now less than 40 days away, we’ll be bringing more official gear to you. With 32 teams in the competing, there is no question that the World Cup is the premier international football (soccer) tournament. After a look at the Official Match Ball and the inspiration and process of its design, we’ve now seen a handful of other products that build on the excitement and anticipation that soccer fans around the world have been dealing with for months now.

Today, we have a look into a trio of hooded sweatshirts designed by Nike. The Nike Core Hoody currently comes in team colors for the USA, Netherlands, and Brazil. Bold screen printed graphics proudly display your allegiance to your team, with country specific details placed on the chest, and sleeves of the Nike Core Hoody.
