PSG star Neymar models Brazil's new kit for World Cup finals
Nike has released the two new kits that Brazil will be wearing at the World Cup in Russia this summer and, as ever, both the home and away shirts are really rather lovely.
While the Selecao have worn yellow since 1954, the latest home shirt features a brighter, bolder hue than sported over the last two decades.
Indeed, the kit designers visited the Football Museum in Sao Paulo and used a colour swatch book to ascertain a perfect match to the exact shade of the yellow that Brazil wore at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico -- one of their five triumphs.
Neymar, battling to overcome a metatarsal injury to take his place in the Brazil squad, was on photo-shoot duty for the home kit.

The equally smart away shirt is rendered in classic blue, with a subtle geometric print covering the torso.
Brazil will wear their new kit for the first time when they play Russia in a World Cup warm-up match in Moscow on Friday.
