Brazil national football team History

Most people think that the Brazilian team played its first match in 1914. The Brazilian team from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo took part in the match against Exeter City Football Club of England. Brazil won the match 2-0 at Flemish Stadium. Oswald Gomez and Usman scored twice each for Brazil. Many claim that the game was tied at 3-3. The team’s initial presence was lighter than its glorious future success. Due to the lack of professionalism in Brazilian football, the Brazilian Football Federation failed to form a strong team at that time.

Brazil made its full debut in the 1954 FIFA World Cup in Switzerland. Forgetting the pain of losing to Maracana in the previous edition, Brazil participated in the event with a group of talented football players like Nelton Santos, Dilma Santos and Didi. But, the team could not go further. They were knocked out of the event after losing 4-2 to strong Hungary in the quarterfinals. The game is considered the most disgusting sport in the history of football and is known as the Battle of Bern.

Golden Age and Yellow (1958-1980):

At the 1958 FIFA World Cup in Sweden, Brazil coach Vicente Fiola imposed some strict rules on the team. Orders for forty players who do not work are provided in the form of a list. These rules included not wearing a hat or umbrella, not smoking in T-shirts, not talking to non-partisan magazines or journalists, and so on. At that time, a delegation of the Brazilian team was sent to Europe to see the qualifiers.

1994 World Cup:

Surprisingly for many, Brazil did not win the World Cup in international football for 24 long years after 1970, not even reaching the final. He managed to overcome the drought at the 1994 World Cup in the United States. At that time, the best attacking players in the world were playing on the attacking side for Brazil. These included Romario, Babito, Donga, Tafril, and Georginho.

In 1994, Brazil won the FIFA World Cup for the fourth time, a record. Brazil has been playing very successfully in this tournament from the beginning. After advancing from the group stage, they reached the quarterfinals with a 1-0 victory over the United States in the 16-team stage. There they reached the semi-finals with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Netherlands. They also beat Sweden 1-0 in the semi-finals. Then, in the final, there is a long-running feud: Italy against Brazil. The game was tied at 0-0 with the result set by Tribeca. At the last minute, Italian striker Roberto Bozo’s shot went over the crossbar and Brazil became world champions for the fourth time. With this, the era of Brazil’s supremacy in world football has begun once again.

1998 World Cup:

Brazil was runner-up in the 1998 FIFA World Cup. In the semi-finals, Brazil drew with the Netherlands. In this match, Ronaldo and Patrick Culvert scored one goal each for their respective teams. In the final, they lost 3-0 to France. Brazil’s defense was very weak in this match. In this match, Zinedine Zidane scored two head goals after a corner kick. Ronaldo suffered a nervous breakdown shortly before the final. Many criticized Ronaldo for keeping him in the front line because he was unable to make significant contributions.

2002 World Cup:

With just five games to go, Brazil were unlikely to qualify for the World Cup at the time. The crisis was exacerbated when Luis Felipe Scolari took over as coach in 2001, with Brazil losing 1-0 to Uruguay in the first round. Brazil finally qualified.

Ignoring strong public opinion before announcing the final squad for the World Cup, he refused to include veteran striker Romario in the squad. Romario himself appealed in a tearful voice, but Scolari rejected it. Before the start of the World Cup, Brazil was considered a relatively weak team. But one-on-one victories in the semi-finals by Turkey, China, Costa Rica, Belgium, England and again took Brazil to the final. Ronaldo’s pair of goals in the final helped Brazil beat Germany to win the World Cup for the fifth time.

2006 World Cup:

On July 24, 2006, Donga, a member of Brazil’s 1994 World Cup winning team, was named Brazil’s new manager. Donga selected his former teammate Georginho as his assistant coach. Donga began coaching against Brazil in Norway on August 16 of that year. The match ended in a 1-1 draw. Donga’s second game as manager was relatively difficult. In this match to be played on September 3, Brazil will face its traditional rival Argentina. Brazil beat Argentina 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium in London. On 5 September, they beat Wales 2-0 at Tottenham Hotspur‘s White Heart. They then beat Kuwaiti club Al Kuwait 4-0, Ecuador 2-1 and Switzerland 2-1.

On February 8, 2006, Donga suffered his first defeat as coach. Brazil lost in a friendly match against Portugal. Former Brazil World Cup winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was Portugal’s manager at the time. Brazil then bounced back from their first defeat in Sweden, beating Chile (4-0) and Ghana (1-0) on March 24 and 26, respectively.

FIFA Confederations Cup 2009:

Brazil won the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa. Brazil’s start to the tournament was not comfortable. In the first match, they lost 4-3 to Egypt. Brazil’s victory came in the final moments of the match when they scored against Egypt from the penalty spot. It was the first time an African football team had scored three goals in a match against Brazil.

However, the team later defeated Italy and the United States. Brazil beat both 3-0. In addition, Brazil will face the United States once again in the final after defeating hosts South Africa in the semi-finals. Although Brazil trailed 2-0 in the first half of this exciting final, they returned to the game in the second half and paid for both goals. Lucio’s game-winning goal six minutes before the end of the match gave Brazil a 3-2 victory in the third FIFA Confederations Cup. The best player of the tournament was Kaka from Brazil and Luis Fabiano scored the most goals. He scored a total of 5 goals in 5 games.

2010 FIFA World Cup

Brazil reached the main draw of the 2010 FIFA World Cup on 5 September 2009, beating Argentina 3-1 at home in Rosario, Argentina.

Brazil was relegated to Group G in the group stage of the World Cup on December 4, 2009. According to many, this is the group of death in this World Cup. Celesaora played his first match with the group on June 15, 2010, against North Korea. They will then play against Dwight on June 20 and the final game of the group stage on June 25 against another strong team, Portugal.

Brazil national football team Kit 2024

The colors of Brazil’s first team were white with a blue collar, but after the defeat in Maracana in the 1950 World Cup, these colors were criticized for their lack of patriotism. With the permission of the Brazilian Sports Confederation, the newspaper Correio da Manhã organized a competition to design a new kit, featuring four colors of the Brazilian flag.

The winning design was a yellow jersey with blue trim with green trim and white trim by Aldyr Garcia Schlee, 19, of Pilotas. The new colors were first used in a match against Chile in March 1954 and have been used ever since. By the time of the game against Wales on 11 September 1991, he was about to make a topper kit for Brazil.

Umbro took charge in October 1991 before the next game against Yugoslavia. Nike started making Brazil kits on time for the 1998 World Cup.
