We’re just over 100 days away from the 2022 FIFA World Cup and one of the favorites to win the tournament is showing us how they’ll look.
Nike has launched Brazil’s home and away kit looks for the tournament, starting this November in Qatar.
The home kit is in the nation’s traditional yellow and green, while the away kit sports the classic blue that has been their change shirt for every World Cup since 1954.
Additionally, both kits feature a jaguar-inspired pattern, with the design taking a more prominent role on the away kit.

The yellow of the home kit is in a slightly brighter tone than the classic gold fans are used to.
It features a smaller green collar accented with blue stripes, with the button on the collar paying homage to the flag of Brazil.
The entire home kit also features a subtle jaguar pattern on the front, back and sleeves of the jersey as a way to link it to the away kit.

The away kit features no collar or buttons and instead lies flat around the neck.
What sets this apart from the home kit is how far Nike decided to run with the jaguar pattern, choosing to cover the sleeves in the design using a bright green to contrast with the dark blue of the shirt.
The goalkeeper kit combines elements from both the home and away kits, with it taking the collar of the away kit, but the subtlety in the jaguar print from the home kit.
Brazil will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their last World Cup triumph, which came in 2002 in Japan.
One of the greatest Seleção teams in history defeated Germany thanks to a brace from Ronaldo.
This tournament’s Brazil side is expected to do well also, entering the tournament as the odds on favorites to win.
Behind them in second place are reigning World Cup winners France, followed by England, Spain and Germany.
