Brazil are currently ranking 4th in the FIFA rankings. They were ranked 1st in the ranking between 1993 and 2007, and between 2009 and 2010. However, as at July 2011, they were ranking behind World Cup Champions Spain, World Cup finalists the Netherlands, and Germany respectively. In its history, the national football team of Brazil has won the FIFA World Cup a record 5 times, the Confederations Cup 3 times, and the Copa America 8 times, among other competition triumphs.
The national team will be wearing a new third kit in 2011 and 2012. The shirt is designed and supplied by Nike, whose Swoosh logo appears in yellow on the right side of the chest. The base colour of the shirt is black, including both sleeves. It has a horizontal yellow stripe on the chest, and a yellow stripe on the inside of the collar. At the back of the neck, the text ‘Brasil’ is printed in yellow.
Originally from Malta and I love football. I appreciate the opportunity that this website gave me to start my career in football journalism. I’m a Man Utd fan and England supporter, and I watch football games mainly from England, Germany and Spain. I love to be informed about everything that is happening in the world of football.
