Flamengo are yet another club from Brazil with a heritage in rowing. The club's full name - "Clube de Regatas do Flamengo" betrays this foundation. Like city rival's Fluminense the club's original constituency was amongst the middle and upper classes (thus the rowing club). My friend Bira sent me this shirt all the way from Brazil. As well as being a classic and iconic shirt, it was also a lucky one for "Mengo" as they won their first championship for 17 years wearing it. Overall it's a well made shirt my Nike standards and well designed for football in warmer climates.
