FIFA.com and FIFA TV are pleased to present the 16th episode of the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Video Magazine. Our twin focus this time is the 1950 FIFA World Cup, and a region famous for its food and fascinating activities for tourists.
The global showdown 63 years ago also took place in next summer’s host nation. It was a historic tournament which culminated in a compelling and dramatic climax. The hosts were favourites to win the Final, but were left demoralised and devastated as a rival South American nation celebrated. Watch our video and see for yourself what happened.
The 16th episode of our Brazil 2014 Video Magazine also takes an in-depth look at Manaus, a region where food plays an exceptionally important role. Manaus is also a great base for trips to the rainforest, so we checked out a few ways to experience a jungle adventure.
But we never stray far from football for long, so we turned the spotlight on former Brazil international Grafite, asking him to explain the reasons behind his playing name.
