It's not difficult to see why the Brazil national football team is often cited as the greatest on the planet. The country has won five World Cup titles, more than any other nation, and they are also the only team that has played in all 20 incarnations of Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup Away ShirtFIFA's prestigious tournament. With that said, 2014 was a bit of a mixed bag for the wearers of the Brazil football strip, boasting big wins and disappointing losses-as well as the second time that the Brazilian side has failed to win a global soccer trophy in front of home audiences.

That's not to say 2014 was a bad year for the team. On the contrary, they won the vast majority of their games, and Neymar marked himself as the global star player that everyone knew he was. In other words, as the year comes to a close, there is plenty to celebrate if you are a fan of the Green and Yellow. Mark that celebration with a new football strip from Soccer Box. Whether you prefer the pure blue hues of the Brazil away jersey 2014 2015, or the iconic yellow and green look of the home Nike strip, you can find both on our online store.

A Tradition of Success

Brazil came in fourth place at the World Cup this summer, which could hardly be considered disappointing. If there is one soccer squad in the world for whom that placement could be seen as underwhelming though, the Brazilians are that squad.

How come? Because the wearers of the Brazil football strip have performed better at soccer's biggest tournament on nine previous occasions. In addition to their five FIFA titles, the country has been the runner-up and third-place finisher on two occasions each. They've also finished in fourth once before, back in 1974 when the event was held in Germany.

Furthermore, the Green and Yellow have only failed to advance to the group stage once. The team has most often exited during the quarterfinals in the years where it failed to make it to the winner's circle.

Needless to say, with a tradition for success like this, fans in the Brazil away jersey 2014 2015 or Nike home strip had plenty of reasons to believe that the Brazilian national side would grab a sixth global football championship in 2014.

Home Defeats

One of the more surprising things about Brazil's history at the World Cup is that they've never won the tournament at home. Although they've been victorious at 25 percent of the cups over the years, and host two of the 20 events, those two things have never overlapped. All of the country's triumphs have occurred away from home, from Italy to the United States.

The first time the Green and Yellow lost the title at home, it was 1950. It was the fourth World Cup event, and the Brazilians had not won a title yet. Fans in the Brazil football strip dominated the crowds at that competition, hoping to see their nation with the trophy for the first time. The squad just missed, finishing in second place to Uruguay.

Fast-forward 64 years, and the tournament was finally back in Brazil. The home side had won five titles, and was hoping to finally give home crowds a front row seat to the victorious action.

Things didn't quite go according to plan, though. Neymar, the country's star player, suffered a back injury during the quarterfinals that forced him to take a seat on the bench. Brazil was subsequently pummeled by Germany in the semis (and by the Netherlands in the consolation match). Despite Brazil's desire to win for the home crowds, the away teams dominated the summer.


Things improved for the Brazil squad after the big FIFA event. First, they won three friendly matches in a row-against Colombia, Ecuador, and Argentina-all at home. Then, they donned the Brazil away jersey 2014 2015 and won away friendlies against Japan, Turkey, and Austria.

Hopefully, the winning streak will continue in the New Year, when play begins for the 2015 Copa America. Could Brazil win their first trophy at the event since 2007? We will have to wait until next year to find out, but in the meantime, you can pick up a 2014 2015 Brazil football strip at Soccer Box to root for them. Whether you are looking for an away jersey or a home jersey, we have you covered.
