2014 is a massive year for World Cup hosts and favourites Brazil. The new strip is said to combine cultural design, performance innovation and environmentally sustainable materials. The new design features the iconic canary yellow home colours with the familiar green trim to the collar and sleeve hems. Nike Creative Director, Martin Lotti said, ” The Brazilian home kit is like a national flag; it symbolizes the country and its people, We wanted to create a fusion of the high speed brilliance of football and the culture of Brazil while staying true to what the home kit represents.”
Star player, Neymar said: “To wear the ‘amarelinha’ is an honour for me and my team mates,” says Brazil star Neymar. “Brazil is a very special place to play football, and we want to play hard and win for our country. This kit helps us to do that with both the technology and the inspiration it provides.” The shirt also features the slogan: “Nascido para jogar futebol” which is Brazilian Portuguese for “Born to Play Football”.
