Nike unveil latest Brazil kit

Rather than bright yellow or blue the kit is a distinctive hue of green – so dark it could be mistaken for black by the untrained eye. The shade of green is an apparent homage to Brazil’s lush jungle and vibrant nightlife. In addition the inside of the shirt features a design of a hand in a ‘figa’ – a symbol similar to the fingers crossed gesture – meaning goodluck.

The shorts are longer than usual football shorts – a nod to Brazil’s love of surfing – and also feature bright horizontal stripes in the traditional colours of Brazilian football.
