On July 24, 2006, Dunga was named as the new national coach of the Brazilian football teams as a replacement for Carlos Alberto Parreira, even though he has no prior coaching experience at professional level. Brazilian former football defensive midfielder, of Italian and German descent, and a World Champion for Brazil in the 1994 World Cup.

The new Brazil jerseys was unveilled at Granja Comary, Rio de Janeiro - the training ground for “Seleção” games. Nike declared the kit was a tribute for the WC’58 team - Brasil’s first title in World Cup - but it had just slight signs of inspiration on them, as it shows just some few changes for the kit that was worn in WC’06: the collar, the lettering and the socks. Brazil shirts has a neck collar and inscription inside that saying “Nascido Para Jogar Futebol” - “born to play football” - is written inside the collar. There are also thin green lines which come up from the bottom of the shirt to around the bottom of the chest

Great, but look at the socks... On the left sock, the stars are in the front and on the right sock, the nike logo is in the front. ;)

What is the reasoning for the star colors on the socks. Why are four of the stars one color, while the fifth is a different color?
