Default U.S. players send anti-racism messages before Wales draw

U.S. players send anti-racism messages before Wales draw

Nov 12, 2020

The United States men's team stepped on to the pitch for their first international match since February with personalised anti-racism messages emblazoned on their training jackets.

Gregg Berhalter's team wore the jackets during the national anthems ahead of Thursday's friendly against Wales at Swansea and both teams took a knee before kickoff in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

"With the goal of inspiring action on social justice issues, all of the players had 'Be the Change' adorned on the front of their anthem jackets," the team said in a statement https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/202...-against-wales.

"Also, on the back of the jacket, each player had the opportunity to include a personalised message representing something meaningful to them.
