PSG star Neymar models Brazil's new kit for World Cup finals

Nike has released the two new kits that Brazil will be wearing at the World Cup in Russia this summer and, as ever, both the home and away shirts are really rather lovely.

While the Selecao have worn yellow since 1954, the latest home shirt features a brighter, bolder hue than sported over the last two decades.

Indeed, the kit designers visited the Football Museum in Sao Paulo and used a colour swatch book to ascertain a perfect match to the exact shade of the yellow that Brazil wore at the 1970...

The international break gives countries a chance for another look at their squads, with the World Cup looming. 

ESPN FC has correspondents for each team at the World Cup, and they've assessed the state of play in the country they're covering.

Here's a look at who has booked their tickets for the plane to Russia (assured of a place in their World Cup squad), who is in the departures lounge (could make it, could miss out) and who is stuck in traffic (likely to miss out) as the race to reach the...

Neymar gets crazy new dreadlocks hairstyle while recuperating from injury

Neymar posted a picture of his new hairstyle on Instagram.

What's a superstar footballer supposed to do when he's got three months off to recover from a broken metatarsal?

Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil striker Neymar hasn't wasted any time in getting himself down to the barber's, though. And he was quick to share a snap on his Instagram.

Neymar has never been shy of changing his look, of course, but this time he might want to think again. 

Dreadlocks. A good idea?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.

Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazilian talent pipeline could be reaching its end

Luiz Adriano, left, and Willian are just two of the numerous Brazilians to debut in Europe with Shakhtar.
Luiz Adriano, left, and Willian are just two of the Brazilian products that made their European debuts at Shakhtar.

Willian scored a brilliant goal for Chelsea against Barcelona in the first leg at Stamford Bridge and struck the post twice. Douglas Costa, on loan from Bayern Munich, was mightily influential as Juventus staged a sensational comeback against Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday. Fernandinho is considered to be an absolutely vital player for Pep Guardiola as Manchester City are trying to make history in the Premier League and Europe. And what do all these Brazilians starring in the Champions League...

Tite giving many players look before naming final Brazil World Cup squad

Brazil coach Tite has already made many of his decisions for the World Cup.

At the start of the season, there were FIFA dates in September, October and November -- plenty of opportunities for players to push their claims to go to the World Cup in Russia.

This year is crueler. There is only once chance -- or two games -- to shine before the squads are named: the FIFA dates at the end of the month. Decision time is approaching.

Brazil coach Tite has already made many of his decisions. He must stay loyal to a group of players who, under his command, have achieved extraordinary...

Four years later, losing Neymar is not a tragedy anymore for Brazil

ESPN FC's Julien Laurens believes PSG were trying not to give too much away on Neymar's injury before his dad revealed the Brazil star would miss 6-8 weeks.
The FC panel share their thoughts on whether or not PSG can band together without Neymar in their UCL second leg against Real Madrid.

After watching his star player, on live TV, leave the Parc de Princes on a stretcher, Brazil manager Tite worried enough about Neymar's health to postpone the call-up announcement for Brazil's friendlies against Russia and Germany this month -- the last such squad before he picks the final 23 names that will represent the Selecao at the 2018 World Cup.

Make no mistake: Neymar's name will be on that list since the theoretical worst-case scenario for his return, according to Rodrigo Lasmar -- the...
