Nike have just unveiled Brazil’s 2022 World Cup jerseys, with both shirts inspired by jaguars.
The Seleçao are currently ranked as the best FIFA men’s team in the world going into the tournament, with Brazil looking to add to their unparalleled haul of five World Cups with a pair of fiercely-designed new kits.
While the home jersey looks like a traditional Brazil kit, the iconic yellow jersey is emblazoned with an all-over jaguar print pattern, inspired by the fur of the jaguar – with the speed and power of the largest cat species in the Amazon chosen to inspire a new generation of Brazil players.
Think you’ve seen grit? Think again.
The 2022 Brazil National Team kit drops tomorrow. Inspired by the
unstoppable grit of the Brazilian people, this jersey is vibrant, fierce and
ready for what’s next. @CBF_Futebol #VesteAGarra #NikeFC pic.twitter.com/U1dRvViNzQ

While the yellow home shirt features the jaguar motif in an understated print, the pattern much more striking on the blue Away jersey, with the graphic contrasting in eye-catching shade of green on the sleeves against Brazil’s classic blue Away template.
There are also several standout pieces from the collection, featuring a track jacket featuring an all-over animal print and a throwback, Noughties-inspired trackset that brings back some prime Swoosh x Brazil vibes from years gone by.
