Unless it's Leeds United debuting a badge, everybody likes a kit reveal. Good, bad, or indifferent, most soccer fans seem to enjoy playing fashion designer. Or at the very least fashion critique. Atlanta United announced a new riff on their color scheme, adding a white uniform where the badge and other logos are peach. In a soccer world where neon is the favorite secondary hue of too many teams and Ajax once won an award for a design where their badge was rose pink, why not?
"Sitting atop the heart with our hallmark five stripes, the Atlanta United crest embodies who we are as a club only now dipped in Peach, boasting our background and paying homage to the fruit that cements us to this city. This is a statement for Atlanta. This is a statement for YOU," read the always necessary explanation of Atlanta's new uniform.
Also in the soccer news, Christian Pulisic subbed out in the 85th minute of Borussia Dortmund's 3-2 home win over Atalanta in their Europa League round of 32 series. Andre Schurrle put Dortmund up in the 30th minute. Atalanta responded with goals in the 51st and 56th minute. Michy Batshuayi equalized for Dortmund in the 65th and scored their winner a minute into stoppage time.
"If we hadn't scored the three goals, it would've been even more difficult," Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoger said. "Doing so ultimately enabled us to win the game – which was the objective. How much more at ease would we be if we were taking a 2-0 lead over there? It's impossible to answer. We have showed over the course of recent weeks that it's relatively difficult to beat us. But that's what the opposition will need to do there. That's why I believe we've got a decent chance – and that we're developing well. We're still making mistakes, but I see us as being in quite a good position."
