World Cup 2014

The 2014 Fifa World Cup  from 12 June to 13 July is in Brazil for a second time after the country first hosted in 1950. Thirty-two teams from around the world will compete in 12 cities for the famous Jules Rimet trophy, with Brazil aiming to win it for a sixth time. Holders Spain, Lionel Messi-led Argentina and Germany are the other favourites. The build-up to the event has been marred by protests and disaffection among Brazilians who feel the billions of dollars spent on the tournament could have been put to better use.
