Today Brazil will literally stop to watch the opening game of our team at South Africa World Cup at 3.30 P.M. (local time).
In Curitiba, the Flower Street, more specifically at the "Boca Maldita", a huge screen was set up so people can follow the games. Everything and everyone is wearing the colors of the Brazilian flag. I believe that there is no other event (political, social, sports) that has the power to mobilize the people of Brazil as the world cup does. Every four years, each Brazilian feel more Brazilian than ever and full of pride of the motherland.
Today Brazil enters the Ellis Park stadium in Johannesburg against North Korea with the following lineup: Julio Cesar, Maicon, Lúcio, Juan and Michel Bastos, Gilberto Silva, Felipe Melo, Elano and Kaka ; Robinho and Luis Fabiano.
Go, Brazil!! And don't forget to play your vuvuzela!
