Brazil's Kit Launch

Brazil have launched their new kit ahead of the the 2014 World Cup, but manager Luiz Felipe Scolari believes it is missing something - a sixth star.

Neymar, David Luiz and Thiago Silva were amongst the stars present at the photo shoot to showcase the famous yellow and green jersey.

Luiz Gustavo also donned the kit for the launch, while Scolari wants to see the five-time champions make their own mark on the new design.

"'The shirt looks great, the only thing missing is a sixth star," Scolari said. "We aim to have that on there after the World Cup."

The kit is made by Nike, who has provided Brazil with their kits since signing a deal with the Brazilian Football Confederation in 1997.

Nike claims each kit is made from 18 recycled plastic bottles and that the shorts carry "100% recycled polyester". The shirt is reported to contain 96% recycled materials and socks 78%.
