U for Unpronounceable

The award for the toughest world cup name goes to the Dutch player Paul Verhaegh (pronounced VERHAHGSDKHGSLDKGJ!)

God!!  Is he able to pronounce his name himself?

T for Trophy

The original Jules Rimet Cup is now in permanent possession of Brazil, the first nation to win 3 world cups. Since 1974, the winner gets a cheaper replica…Now it’s just a 36 cm high trophy made of solid 18 carat gold and weighs 6175 grams. Yeah yeah, that’s cheap enough!!!

E for Elephant Nelly

Here comes yet another fortune teller!!

After octopus Paul, elephant Nelly from Serengeti Park would be the ‘star’ to watch out for this season. Forget humans, even animals are crazy about football!!

O Nelly, please tell me

Who will win the bet between me and he!!

B for Betting

Brazil is famous for betting!

And this season it gonna be even bigger and better with Brazil hosting the event!

But besides all the talent and determination, there is an avalanche of pressure on the team as they bid to win an unprecedented 6th world cup.

Liked it?

Well, the song has been drawing some flak for the lack of a Brazilian feeling.

L for Loud

Caxirola

The caxirola is the official world cup noisemaker. Although it’s banned in the stadiums it is already making noise in the marketplace. Its sales are booming!

So are you ready to shake your caxirola in support of Fifa 14?

Are you ready to make some noise for the Fifa boys?

Are you ready for some futebol?

Hell yeah!! Gooo on then!! The battle begins soon!!
