Why go? It seems only right that the country that produced one of the world’s best ever footballers, Pelé, and where the game itself isn’t just a national pastime but obsession, should be hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2014.
What's on? If you don’t end up scoring family tickets for the final, don’t worry. As welcome visitors, you’ll be asked to join a game almost anywhere in the country, whether it’s being held on a street corner, dusty field or a local stadium.
