Rio de Janeiro:

Football star Neymar and his Santos teammate Paulo Henrique Ganso on Friday unveiled the new jerseys of Brazil's national team, which will be used during the London summer Olympics later this year.

Neymar, who turns 20 this month, posed with the official yellow jersey while 22-year-old Ganso wore the blue alternative.

The new V neck models feature the sentence "born to play football" on the sleeve.

The yellow version drops the green strip found on the chest of the previous model and the blue one no longer sports a yellow strip.

The national side led by coach Mano Menezes will wear the new jersey for the first time during a friendly game against Bosnia in Switzerland on February 28.

"I found the uniform very pretty, it's more traditional," Menezes told the G1 website during the presentation at the Rio Jockey Club.
