Check out the customized boots that two members of the England and USA football squads designed last night at Nike Town. The players will be wearing them in Germany this summer.
England will play the USA on Saturday (tomorrow) night in a warm up match for the Women’s World Cup that kicks off in Germany at the end of June. The match is taking place at The Matchroom Stadium, Leyton Orient FC and will also be shown live on FA TV.
England players Faye White and Ellen White along with US players Hope Solo and Carli Lloyd were in NIKEiD creating their dream pair of boots. NIKEiD allows you to customise footwear and clothing online to suit your individual tastes and performance needs. You can find out more at www.NIKEiD.com.
Check out the designs below……and look out for them on the turf in Germany.
Ellen White – England
A tall, strong forward, Ellen really made a name for herself during the World Cup qualifiers. She scored on her debut against Austria in March and has now scored five goals in just eleven appearances.
She signed for Arsenal ladies from Leeds Carngie, where she won The FA Women’s Premier League Cup in February 2010. This year’s World Cup will be her first.
Faye White – England
Faye has been a commanding presence at the heart of the Arsenal and England defences since the late 1990’s. She made her mark in the 1997-98 season, being named ‘Premier League Player of the Year’.
Hope Solo – USA
One of the best goalkeepers in the world, Hope has been the USA’s first choice since 2005 and played a major role during the USA’s Olympic gold medal run in 2008. Wonderfully athletic with a world class kicking game, she is currently at the tail end of a long recovery from major shoulder surgery and will build on her 91 appearances for the US heading into the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Carli Lloyd – USA
A dynamic presence in the centre of the US midfield, she is the USA’s leading goal scorer in this World Cup year. She has been capped 107 times by her country and scored 27 international goals. Among her numerous important goals for the US was her game winner during overtime against Brazil in the 2008 Olympic gold medal match.
