Embassy of Brazil in London

Looking back at the World Cup

Ambassador Jaguaribe
In an article about the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Ambassador Roberto Jaguaribe argues that the event deserves to be considered a great success. Among other factors, Brazil's infrastructure, including the twelve stadiums and the national transport network, coped very well; a record number of tickets were sold, meaning the stadiums were generally full; and the Brazilian population, together with the huge numbers of foreign fans, combined to create a warm and enthusiastic atmosphere around the whole event - as emphasised by most of the British football journalists who were there (see also 'Brazil in the British Press', below).

President Rousseff interview

President Dilma Rousseff gave an interview to the international media this week. In a long conversation with CNN's Christiane Amanpour she spoke about the possible repercussions of Brazil's heavy defeat to Germany in the World Cup; the success of the tournament as a whole; the issues raised by the anti-World Cup protests; the most important challenges facing Brazil in the coming years; and her personal recollections of struggle against Brazil's military dictatorship in the 1970s.

Brazil Day in Trafalgar Square

Well, what a week it's been! The 2014 World Cup got underway on Thursday in São Paulo with hosts Brazil beating Croatia 3-1, thanks to Neymar and a friendly referee. Meanwhile, in London, the Embassy screened the match to an audience of invited guests. A couple of hours earlier, the massed drums of the London School of samba had drawn our 'Brazil Day' festival to a close in Trafalgar Square. The event was a great success, with more than 25 thousand people enjoying live music, DJs, dance lessons, capoeira and much more. Even the weather played its part: hot sunshine specially imported from Rio. Photos of Brazil Day
