Brazil unveil absolutely gorgeous white kit for the Copa America

Wil Jones

It will be the first time they have worn white in the Copa America since 1952

When you think of the Brazil national side, you think of many things: Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Neymar, that Nike advert in the airport, losing 7-1 to Germany…

There is also the iconic yellow and green shirt.

That is about to change, at least for a little while, as Brazil are returning to a predominantly white shirt for the first time since 1952.

TheSeleçao ditched the white after a crushing defeat to Uruguay at the Maracanã during the 1950 World Cup. The country was so wounded by the defeat in that they took the decision to stop wearing the colours and adopt the colours of their flag: yellow and green with blue shorts.

CBF Futebol unveiled the new strip, and it is a beauty.

The shirt is to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Copa America.
