Football Five+brazil

Football is the most popular sport in Brazil. The Brazilian national football team has won the FIFA World Cup tournament a record five times, in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002, and is the only team to succeed in qualifying for every World Cup competition ever held. It is among the favorites to win the trophy every time the competition is scheduled. After Brazil won its 3rd World Cup in 1970, they were awarded the Jules Rimet Trophy permanently. But 365 days before World Cup 2014 begins, Brazil's rank dropped to 22nd, an all-time-low position.

Pelé, arguably the greatest footballer ever, led Brazil to three of those championships and is the top scorer of all time in the sport. All of the leading players in the national teams are prominent in the football world, including Garrincha, Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Romário, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and Kaká in the men's game, and Marta in the women's game. Some of these players can be considered super-stars, achieving celebrity status internationally and signing sports contracts, as well as advertisement and endorsement contracts, in the value of millions of euros.

Football is taken very seriously in Brazil. During the World Cup workers pause from their duties to watch their team in action; even banks shut down three hours before matches to allow their workers time to prepare for the game.

The governing body of football in Brazil is the Brazilian Football Confederation. Brazil will host the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

so just how crazy does it get? do they like set up huge screens in the city square so those that couldn't make it in can watch it?

Yes, they do. And when the country wins the competition, like a World Cup, everybody paints their faces in green and yellow and dress with the country's jersey and goes to the street to celebrate. we sing songs and dance. it's a big party.

I remember when Brazil won in 2002, I was so obsessed with that team. I brought my portable TV into school to watch the final in class haha. I loved Ronaldo and Bobby Carlos. I don't know many of the current Brazilian team because I follow Spanish football now, but rest assured I'll be super excited at World Cup time!!

Don't hold your breath, I don't think Brazil's gonna win that World Cup - and if it does, I'll be shocked and really terrified about my country's safety. We're having some protests against many things and one of them IS the World Cup.
