BR - World Cup 2014 is just one empty summer away. We're off to Brazil this time, where the children kick footballs to school and swathes of beautiful women samba their way through every match.
England might be the home of the game, but Brazil is its beautiful, life-affirming soul.
The five-times champions will be hosting the World Cup for the second time. The first saw South American rivals Uruguay win a bizarrely-formatted tournament with no final in 1950.
