FIFA.com and FIFA TV are pleased to present the 17th episode of the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Video Magazine. In this edition, you’ll join us on a tour of host city Fortaleza, where we take a close-up look at the stadium.
We also turn the spotlight on Brazil national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. Already boasting a long and distinguished career record, the renowned supremo is aiming high with the host nation next summer. After leading his men to the trophy at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, he is now totally focused on next year’s FIFA World Cup finals.
Football is the guiding passion in Brazil, but the nation has plenty to offer in other sports as well. Jiu Jitsu, a martial art originally from Japan, enjoys enormous popularity in its Brazilian form. Manaus is an important centre for the discipline.
We round off the magazine with a review of qualifying for the 2014 showdown, where the races for places around the world are slowly but surely turning onto the home straight.
