Brazil is bouncing! Wherever you look you will see people of all ages kicking a ball about as they rock into the FIFA World Cup™ spirit.

The above picture shows youngsters kicking a ball about in a favela in Rio de Janeiro, in front of graffiti depicting Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Neymar of Brazil, among others.

Multiple Brazilian legends honed their skills in the Carioca favelas, including Romario and Ronaldo, using balls made out of rags and doing keepy-ups with oranges.
