The World Cup in Brazil

The problems we face

            There are many problems in the World Cup in Brazil. The corruption is one of the biggest impediments Brazil faces as it attempts to improve its infrastructure before the tournament.
            We can highlight three main problems:


            Trouble is Brazil's airport infrastructure badly needs repair.
            The country risks embarrassment on a global scale if it runs out of space at its airports. That could even happen before 2014 World Cup Kicks off.
            Without taking proper action, Brazil faces increasing flight delays and cancellations. And in the long term, it may experience constrained economic growth if changes don't happen soon...”


            “The Minister of Sports promised 12 stadiums for the 2014 World Cup ready, but there have been severe delays in all 12 cities chosen to stage the matches.”
           In order to accelerate the stadiums construction the Brazilian government exempted the companies responsible for building the stadiums of paying taxes.



             A few days ago Brazilian Sports Minister Orlando Silva has denied accusations that he was involved in the embezzlement of millions of dollars in public funds. Veja magazine published detailed allegations that he took cash from a scheme to promote sport among poor children.
            Four ministers have resigned or been sacked after being accused of corruption since president Dilma took office last January, though all denied wrongdoing.

The Brazilian Team conviction

The Brazilian World team has always been a polemic issue. The conviction of each coach is never similar to the Brazilian fans. However, as it’s an exercise of imagination, it costs nothing to dream of a midfield full of faces, without many worries and unforgettable defensive performances.
We want to see the national team playing football happy, loose, engaged and above all, Champion.
Thinking of this, let´s help Mano Menezes call the eleven ideal players.
