World Cup Fever

The much-awaited showdown between England and Brazil will take place during the wee hours (3.30am) of Friday morning. Judging by England’s stellar performance so far and Brazil’s host of stars, it should be a tough fought match which many, including Pel, believe will produce the 2002 World Cup champions. Given the hour, most Brazilians will get together in each other’s homes to watch the match while most bars, restaurants and hotels will also be showing it. A popular hang out for the English fans is O’Malleys pub on Itu, which boasts a large screen and six TVs spread throughout the bar, or All Black on Oscar Freire. It could also be a chance to see yourself on local TV, as the Globo channel has been visiting these pubs recently to get pre-match and half time vibes from the fans.
