When Brazil looks to win its sixth World Cup on its home soil this summer, it’ll do so in the utmost style. The yellow and blue numbers above stick close to the blueprint for the seleção’s respective home and away kits. Meanwhile, the dark green alternate jersey provides a nice change of pace, right down those subtly striped shorts. To mix our sports metaphors, Brazil (with some help from Nike) knocks it out of the park. Final score: 10/10
Another excellent study in contrasts. Portugal’s red home kit is all fire and strength, while the away kit features a clean blue and white look. The Portuguese Football Federation’s excellent patch, meanwhile, is a welcome addition to any shirt. Final score: 9.5/10 The beautiful moment: Ronaldo’s young son starstruck by Messi at Ballon d’Or
