Brazil to wear traditional kit for World Cup opener with Croatia
Brazil will only change from using their traditional blue shorts for one of their group games at the upcoming World Cup, after FIFA confirmed the uniforms for Group A's encounters.
As synonymous a football strip as one can think of, the Selecao has always worn yellow tops, blue shorts and white socks when possible, in what is surely one of the world's most iconic kits.
For their matches against Croatia and Mexico, the World Cup hosts will remain in their traditional garb, but for the final match of the section, against Cameroon, Brazil have been ordered to don white shorts to avoid any hint of colour clashing.
It is not known how FIFA will approach the latter stages of the tournament, as potential second round opponents Spain and Chile also normally wear blue shorts.
Brazil fans won't care if their heroes wear bright pink attire, as long as they win the trophy on home soil.
