Detroit Lions defensive lineman, Ndamukong Suh has got into the World Cup mood by posing with a custom made USA soccer jersey on twitter today.

Suh was gifted the jersey by Nike Soccer, who are the official kit sponsor of the US men's national team and proudly displayed it for his 389,000 followers who usually follow a different sort of football.

The jersey was mocked up to include Suh's name and the number 90, which he wears for the Detroit Lions.

The real United States soccer team lost to the 2-0 to the Ukraine in Cyprus today as part of their World Cup preparation.

Suh has recorded over 27 sacks and 186 tackles in his four year NFL career.

Apparently the 307 pound lineman used to play soccer during his youth in Portland but his natural size made the NFL a better fit for Suh.

He did display his skills with the foot as a Lion when he missed an extra point against the New York Jets in 2010.
