YELLOW LEAVER BRAZIL are ditching their famous yellow kit for an historic new look against mystery opponents in July.
The five-time world champions will not even use their royal blue second kit for the match at the Arena Amazonia in Manaus.
Neymar will hope to be fit and ready when Brazil switch from their traditional yellow in the summer
Instead, Brazil will don green.
Of course, it already provides the trim for their current main shirt.
But never before have they primarily worn the colour that surrounds the yellow and blue emblem on their national flag.
One reason for the change is to promote better care of the Amazon rainfores
That’s because proceeds from match tickets will go towards SOS Amazonia, a conservation campaign fighting to improve environmental awareness.
Brazilian journalist Andre Rizek broke the news of the new shirt well ahead of the summer game – for which the opponents are yet to be confirmed.
The Arena Amazonia venue was built for the 2014 World Cup.
The Selecao have twice released green shirts before, in 2014 and 2017.
But the players only used those tops for training.
Some Brazilians might be happy for political reasons with the upcoming change in shirt.
The yellow shirt, as well as the Brazilian flag, became associated with far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro.
The so-called “Trump of the tropics” narrowly lost power to returning left-wing leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva last October.
