Polandball Cartoon ~ Brazil's Bus Tickets by Undevicesimus Polandball Cartoon ~ Brazil's Bus Tickets by Undevicesimus
Seven years have passed since Brazil claimed the privilege to host the FIFA World Cup 2014, which the government apparently promised would be one great tribute to the emergence of Brazil as a modernised, well-developed economic giant. Or at least, such was the official propaganda. The FIFA World Cup 2014 is right here, and what is the state of affairs in Brazil? More than 11,000,000,000 USD went into hosting an event which will place Brazil in the world spotlights for about a month. But behind this skin-deep facade, Brazil is a country where economic and social inequality rise sky-high amidst a nearly omnipresent political corruption. This is a country struggling to provide its people with basic security, education, healthcare and public transportation. The masses stage protests and riots because they can barely afford something as simple as a bus ticket. Considering these are only the things that reach the Western media, the situation on the ground is probably much worse...

For the sake of the people of Brazil, I sincerely hope their national team does well at the World Cup, so that the burdens imposed on them by the Brazilian government and the corrupt FIFA are at least partly and temporarily lightened. When the World Cup is over, however, I fear Brazil will only have become a better place in the fantasy of the foreigners who no doubt will be confirmed in the typical Western image of Brazil as a country of football, carnival, beaches and curvy women. For most Brazilians, it could very well be a rude awakening.

Messi plays for Argentina.

And the 1-7 was great, I agree, but only because I support Germany :)

I guess you mean Tiago Silva? He got 2 yellows against Colombia and missed the game against Germany. And the other Brazilian superstar Neymar got hurt against Colombia (horrible kick in the back from Zúñiga) and also couldn't play against the Germans.
