Not only does it take concentration to try and live up to the expectations of a whole country; you also need to be properly dressed for the task. Therefore, Nike have just now launched a brand new home shirt that can be gathering point for the nation, and connect the many excited fans to their stars. The shirt will strive to encapsulate the unique football culture that can be found deep within any Brazilians DNA.
Not surprisingly the shirt is yellow with elegant detailing in green, which are also the colours of the football loving countrys flag. The yellow colour is, as previously, dominant, but around the arms there has been room a green stripe that adds elegance and style. The shirts are a perfect match with the Brazilian players, and Nike have scanned every single play to create the most optimal and best fit.
To represent Brazil is not only about playing football. It is about representing an entire country, which has a lifestyle and way of life where football is much more than a game. This passions is clearly displayed on the inside of the collar, which writes "Nascido para jogar futebol" which translate means born to play football, some thing that describes the Brazilians view on football quite well.
If there is something that the Brazilians love as much as football, it must be the nice and lush warmth of their country. On the other hand it can quickly become a rather hot affair to play football in the heating sun, and Nike have therefore equipped the shirt the ventilation areas, so Neymar Jr. and the other Brazilians will not overheat. The shirt has also been made 16% lighter, so it should certainly not be holding back the Brazilian players.
The shirt is also made with Nikes Dri-Fit material, which wicks sweat and moisture from your body. It would be a national tragedy if the Brazilian stars would not be able to perform optimally throughout the tournament, and Nike have therefore been sure to consider the warmth when designing this shirt.
As winner of the Confederations Cup and hosts of the World Cup expectations will be huge for Brazil, who have just gotten a brand new shirt from Nike for the hunt for World Cup triumph.
