Dream Season for Raul Jimenez

Raul Jimenez had a bumpy start to his European career. It started with him receiving just 4 league starts in his first season with Atletico Madrid and scoring 1 goal. His estimated $12m transfer seemed like a bust for the Spanish giants. He was sent to Benfica and experienced some success but was never fully trusted to lead the line for the Portuguese giants.

Although he did reach double digit goal totals in 2 out of the 3 seasons, he wanted more responsibility than being a super sub.

TCK FC Kits

2019-2020 TCK FC Kit

I reached out to Icarus FC to design some kits for TCK FC after Hec recommended them and I think they killed it. Before we place our order, I figured I would open it up and see if anyone else is interested in ordering one as well. There is a long sleeve option as well if that’s more your thing. Reach out to me via email or DM if you are interested. Ultimately, the price will range between $30-40 depending on the final order count and will ship 6-8 weeks after the order is placed.

El Tri have another tournament this summer because well, how else is CONCACAF going to make money if they don’t hold the Gold Cup every 2 years. If you’re a fan of Mexico, you will notice several national team stalwarts missing. Some due to injuries, others for personal reasons and one because he pissed off the new coach…
