In the 26th episode of the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Video Magazine we focus our attention on the World Cup host country, where the final preparations are coming together nicely before the global showpiece kicks off in just a few months’ time. 

However, we begin by taking a look back at the excitement of the World Cup play-offs. Watch the highlights of the most important games once again before we take you on a journey to the Sugar Load Mountain.

In Rio we take a look at the Santa Marta favela, a popular and appealing destination for so many tourists. We then present the "Futebol de Rua” programme in Curitiba, a project providing young players with a chance to play football. 

And let’s not forget the animal attractions on offer in Brasilia. The capital has so much to offer beyond its impressive office buildings and its fantastic football stadium. The zoo is well worth a visit for all World Cup tourists and is one to remember when you plan your trip.

Don’t miss the 26th edition of the official FIFA World Cup™ Video Magazine. Have fun!
