The moment every Brazilian has been waiting for is finally here: the release of the Selecao’s World Cup kit.
You’re not going to believe this, but it’s yellow and green, with blue shorts and white socks:
The only notable difference from past shirts is the subtle V-neck look, though techies can nerd out over Nike’s use of 3D body-scanning. The torsos of every member of the Brazilian squad were measured to produce custom-fit shirts. Obviously regular folk won’t receive that benefit, but Nike’s best-selling international jersey is still set to make a killing, especially within the World Cup host country.
Brazil’s manager Luiz Felipe Scolari said, “The shirt looks great, the only thing missing is a sixth star. We aim to have that on there after the World Cup.”
…and then everyone will need to buy the updated kit.
