Published Add your comment

Brazil travel to Wembley next week for a glamour friendly with England, celebrating 150 years of the Football Association, and the Selecao will use the occasion to show off their new home kit.

The latest home shirt was launched by Neymar this week set against the backdrop of Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach, as dreams of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil edge closer to becoming a reality.

Neymar showed off the famous yellow jersey as part of Batalha das Quadras (Battle of the Court) - a competition for young players to play small-sided football on a variety of surfaces to sharpen their skills and celebrate the game.

The competition, say the kit manufacturers Nike, 'honours the unique heritage' of Brazilian football, with the likes of Neymar, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho having honed their celebrated talents playing street football and small-sided games.

Neymar and Ronaldinho are both in the Brazil squad to face England on February 6, and the former says it is a privilege every time he is able to represent his country.

"To wear the 'amarelinha' is the greatest honour for me and my teammates," Neymar said at the launch. "Football is part of our lives in this country and the new Brazil kit is a classic design with all the technology that we need to perform."
