Official Nike Brazil home football shirt from the 2000/01 international season.

Condition of this original football jersey is 9/10 - Superb (see photos).

Entering the 1998 World Cup as defending champions, Brazil finished runner-up in the 1998 FIFA World Cup. After a very respectable campaign during which they beat Netherlands on penalties in the semi-final following a 1–1 draw with goals from Ronaldo and Patrick Kluivert, the team lost to host France 3–0 in a final game. Brazilian marking at defensive set pieces was poor, and Zinédine Zidane was able to score two headed goals from France's corner kicks.

Also, Brazilian star Ronaldo suffered an epileptic seizure a few hours before the match. Many criticized the decision to reinstate Ronaldo into the starting lineup as he put on a poor performance another reason that had been given for Brazil's poor performance was lack of preparation. Brazil had not played in the playoffs and the selection of the 22 players who were going to France was made based on friendly matches without real competition. In addition, the injury to Romario, Ronaldo's preferred starting partner, prior to the tournament may have also played a factor.
