Nike Unveils New Brasil National Team Jersey

By - February 1st, 2011


During the 2010 FIFA World Cup it seemed like everyone had football fever; now, not so much. As the true fans are watching the Premier League battle it out, the fair weather fans are long gone. Nike is proving it’s investment in the game of soccer with what so far is a steady stream of off-year moves, the latest of which is this new kit designed for the Brazilian national team. Having just created a full uniform for the French team, who had a very embarrassing showing at the 2010 World Cup, Nike is moving to Brazil – who also fell short of their (admittedly lofty) expectations at the Cup – hurt in part by an own goal, which helped knock them out in the quarterfinals against The Netherlands. Like the French, the Canarinho get a new chance with a new jersey too, with all of the state of the art Nike technology built in. Check out the new jersey in full after the jump, in both product shots and as worn by Alexandre Rodrigues da Silva, AKA Pato. There is a good chance this will be the jersey of the 2014 Cup winners.
