With the World Cup around 18 months away from taking place in Brazil; the host nation would have the Confederations Cup to look forward to in 2013 ahead of the grand spectacle in 2014. The calendar year of 2013 began with a new strip being introduced for the ‘Selecao’ which debuted in the 2-1 defeat away against England on February 6th. That defeat would pave the way for a phenomenal run of 6 games unbeaten against a murderer’s row of opposition that included: Italy, Russia, Bolivia, Chile, England and France, as they prepared to hosting duties for the Confeds. Brazil were nothing short of excellent at the tournament; defeating Japan, Mexico and Italy in the group stages, to set up a semi-final with Uruguay, which the hosts duly won to set the stage for a grand finale against the World and European champions: Spain. Brazil would swat Spain aside 3-0 to retain the Confederations Cup for the second time of asking. A defeat to Switzerland would do nothing to derail their momentum, as they ended 2013 with 6 straight wins following that defeat. As this set of shirts were only used in 2013, the away shirt was never worn by the national side in any of their 19 games, making it all the more of a rare piece! While this shirt share the same elasticated sleeves, it would differ from the home shirt as it employed a hoop neck collar rather than polo collar, and came with white stripes down the arms, made from the same perforated material as the central strip used on the 2011 series of shirts.
The notable players that season(s) were:
Neymar Jr, Fred, Hulk, Jo, Jadson, Bernard, Willian, Jean, Oscar, Hernanes, Lucas Moura, Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Fernando, David Luiz, Dani Alves, Dante, Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Marquinhos, Felipe Luis, Rever, Julio Cesar, Jefferson
