World Cup jerseys get mixed reviews ahead of Qatar’s opening game
The 2017 World Cup is almost here and while the competition in Russia may not be the most entertaining game on the planet, having your country’s name on the uniforms of the men’s and women’s national teams can be a big deal.

The Australian side was the first to play their opening game of the tournament. On Tuesday, the hosts played their first ever game in Canada, which took place on the same day.
The Canadian team was announced by the Canadian Soccer Association in July. While the opening game was played in Canada, it was the first time that the women’s team had played a match in their own country and the first time that the men’s team had competed in Canada.
This will be the first match that the two nations will play against each other and while many have questioned how they will compare against each other, the women
