The logo was covered with a patch of the Chilean flag.

A flag of Chile. That is what the Nike logo now covers on the jerseys worn by the national team during the Copa América that takes place between June 13 and July 10 in Brazil.

In the match against Bolivia, which the Chilean team won 1-0, the players jumped onto the field covering the brand of the American multinational, which is responsible for manufacturing the clothing of the entire team.

For their part, the team’s coaches and staff covered the brand on their jerseys and pants with adhesive tape, as local media showed.
