The number 10 has a special meaning- depending who you ask. According to the Bible, virgins, come in tens. I’ll stop there. I know nothing of either.
I do know that in soccer, the number 10 is usually worn by the team’s play maker. Lionel Messi does it now for Argentina. And a few greats have done it in the past for both club and country.
There will be a different Number 10 representing the United States at the World Cup this year. That shirt belonged to one Landon Donovan. We have an idea of some Yanks worthy to don the dubious dime, but, unlike the virgins in biblical times, no one wants to wear it.
Just for shits and giggles, here’s what the World Cup will be missing from good ol’ Number 10 (music bed not top ten).
