Picture: Brazil unveil their jersey for the World Cup in 2014

We suspected as much, but the hosts are going to be well-dressed for the huge event

With some of the biggest stars in the world game as their models, the Brazilian national team and Nike unveiled the new jersey that they'll be wearing at World Cup 2014 next year today, and we must admit it looks pretty slick.

Like most of the other countries, they've gone for a very classic and somewhat retro look, and although it's pretty simple, it's still one of the nicer shirts that we've seen. That said, we can't help but dream of what the kit would look like if Adidas had gotten the gig and made a retro number, somewhat like the Palmeiras third kit, which is a thing of beauty.

For their part, the seleção will be hoping that they get their hands on the trophy no matter what threads they're wearing, after they impressed at the Confederations Cup earlier this year. At the launch, Luiz Felipe Scolari drove him this desire when he stated that the only thing missing from the shirt was a sixth star. No pressure then...
