Football in Brazil
Football and Brazilian life go hand in hand. Brazil have won the FIFA World Cup? five times (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002), the FIFA World Youth Championship three times (1983, 1985, 1993) and the FIFA U-17 World Championship once (1999). The only honour on the world stage to have eluded Brazil so far is the Olympic Football Tournament. Brazil is unsurpassed as a breeding ground for famous players - no other country can match its record. Small wonder that the country leads the way with regard to the number of players gracing leagues abroad. Several coaches have accepted positions in the Gulf and have subsequently led their charges to continental and intercontinental triumphs. Intriguingly, the same coaches have often returned to train the Brazilian national team (Zagallo 1970, 1998; Parreira 1994, 2006).
