Several United States Men’s National Team players have been tweeting good luck photos to the members of the women’s national team who share their jersey numbers.

It seems that every member of the men’s senior team with a Twitter account has sent out a corresponding tweet to their “number twin” ahead of the USWNT debut game against Australia later today.

Similar to the men’s team last year in Brazil, the women’s team has been placed in the tournament’s “group of death” and support has been flooding in from all sections of U.S. Soccer. Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann also sent a video to the women’s team.

The corresponding numbers are interesting to see, goalkeeper Brad Guzan shares a number with midfielder/forward Lauren Holiday.

Two of the most dynamic midfielders in the United States happen to share a number, Megan Rapinoe and Kyle Beckerman.

Fabian Johnson and Christen Press share more than a number. They also happen to share the same birth month of December.

Alejandro Bedoya and Ali Krieger might occupy different parts of the field but they share the #11 shirt number.

Goalkeeper Nick Rimando shares his number, 22, with midfielder Meghan Klingenberg.

Two of the fastest players on both teams share the number 2 — Sydney Leroux and DeAndre Yedlin.

Graham Zusi and Julie Johnston might not share positions but they do share number 19.

Number five is shared by Kelley O’Hara and Matt Besler.

Sharing number 13 and recent injuries are Alex Morgan and Jermaine Jones.

Experience meets youth at number 16 with Julian Green and Lori Chalupny.

Midfielders Carli Lloyd and Mix Diskerud share a position as well as number 10.

Lastly at number 17 we see Jozy Altidore and Tobin Heath.
