The Famous Brazil Soccer Jersey

Famous Brazil Soccer Uniform The Brazil national soccer team probably played their first game in a 1914 match between a select team made up of players from the Rio de Janiero and São Paulo areas against the English club team Exeter City. Although Brazil won the match 2-0, their early years as a National side were conspicuously unsuccessful, partly due to the internal politics within the Brazil Football Confederation meant they were unable to field full strength teams. The main disputes were between the state federations from Rio de Janiero and São Paulo, resulting in the National team being unable to pick players from either state. Their first full international match saw them lose 3-0 away to Argentina. In the first two World Cups of 1930 and 1934 they were knocked out in the first round. However, by 1938 there were signs of improvement as Brazil finished third with Leonidas da Silva top scorer in the competition.

Brazil Soccer and the World Cup

The Brazil soccer team has won the World Cup five times, first in 1958 during what many called the Golden era of Brazillian soccer with great players like Garrincha and Pelé making their first impressions on world football. They won the final in 1958 against hosts Sweden 5-2. In the next World Cup Pele of Brazil Brazil were again champions with Garrincha the star after Pelé was injured early in the tournament. In 1966 Brazil were again one of the favourites but were unsettled by internal political disputes again and were knocked out in the first round. This world cup was also notable for the overly aggressive marking afforded the world greatest player Pelé who was basically kicked out of the tornament. He would however get his revenge four years later!

The 1970 World Cup finals in Mexico were memorable for the fantastic free flowing football of the champions Brazil who won the final 4-1 against Italy. Brazil contained Pelé, one of the older players in the side but still the world's best, Jairzinho who scored in every game, their captain Carlos Alberto, plus a midfield of Tostão, Gérson and Rivelino. No other side could live with possibly the greatest football team of all time. This was Brazil's third World Cup victory and they were awarded the Jules Rimet trophy to keep.

Pelé retired from international football before the next World Cup in 1974 and Brazil struggled to compete against the fast flowing football of the great Holland team of Johan Cruyff where they finished only fourth. In 1978 a more competive Brazil side looked to be heading for the finals when a slightly bizarre and controversial result meant them missing out again. In a change to the usual qualifying format, Ronaldinho of Brazil Brazil were ahead of hosts Argentina in the second qualifying group with a goal difference of +5. Argentina were due to play Peru and needed to win by 5 goals, suffice to say they won 6-0 and progressed to the finals at Brazil's expense.

It wasn't until 1994 that Brazil lifted the World Cup for the fourth time after an uncharacteristically defence inspired performance saw them beat Italy in the final on penalty kicks after a dour 0-0 draw. In 1998 Brazil were runner-up but a more attractive attacking team in 2002 including Rivaldo, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho were again champions defeating Germany in the final 2-0. In 2006 Brazil were knocked out in the quarter finals by a Zinedine Zidane inspired France.
