Nike Launch Beautiful Retro White Brazil Kit To Celebrate 100th Anniversary Of Copa America
Nike have launched a white Brazil kit to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Copa America and we might have fallen deeply in love with this stunning retro-style design.
It will be the first time for almost 70 years that Brazil have sported a white kit.
The nation stopped wearing it following a devastating defeat to Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup, but we are delighted to see it making a comeback.
Real Madrid wonderkid Vinicius Junior was chosen by Nike to launch the new jersey following his breakthrough season at Los Blancos.

The teenager has quickly established himself for the national team, as well. He revealed his delight at being chosen to be part of the photoshoot:
"It's an honor and a source of real joy to be here and to pull on a historic shirt that has not been used for so long," he said via MARCA.
Plenty on social media voiced their appreciation of Brazil's new kit.

This isn't the first time Brazil have produced the goods when it comes to spicy kit designs.
Throughout last summer's World Cup campaign, the nation sported a stunning pre-match shirt that warrants to be framed in my front room.
Nigeria's home kit stole the show, but this deserved huge plaudits.
