Peru's Pirate FC Play With Jack Sparrow On The Front Of Their Shirts

Peru's Pirate FC Play With Jack Sparrow On The Front Of Their Shirts

Football in South America is just the bloody best and if you needed further proof then there's Pirate FC from Peru and their shirts that don the face of Captain Jack Sparrow.

The biggest icon in football across the pond in history isn't Freddy Adu, Landon Donovan, Christian Pulisic or anyone else but of course Homer Simpson.

Simpson once refereed a World Cup final and in commemoration of that moment he ended up appearing on not one but two of Argentine fourth division side Ferro de General Pico's goalkeeper kits.

But the man with a love of doughnuts isn't the only American icon to turn up on a football shirt in South America with Pirates FC donning Captain Jack Sparrow on the front of their shirts.

Molino El Pirata, to give them their full name, have been wearing Captain Jack on their crest for a while but this season he's been promoted to sit on the middle of the shirt too.

It seems to us that Sparrow would make a pretty good captain of the football team, especially considering he can even captain a crew when he doesn't even have a ship.

I mean who wouldn't get behind this quote of his, "The seas may be rough, but I am the Captain! No matter how difficult, I will always prevail."?

Now there's a man who would go down with a sinking football club!

Time to add 'Pirates FC' to our list of favourite kits this season and if we had Jack's compass, as well as a bit of his rum, then it would certainly be pointing in the way of this kit.

Things aren't going too well for the team recently with two draws and a loss in their last three games in the Copa Peru.

Until they win a few more games they won't be borrowing a phrase from Jack and saying, "I'm afraid you have the misfortune of facing Captain Jack Sparrow," anytime soon.
