"In Brazil, Football is not restricted by physical space to stadiums, fields, beaches, the backs of buildings or any old area, where a couple of teams can run after a ball. Football lies deep in the soul of all brazilians. And it is in the soul that football becomes the most beautiful of all sports. No one plays better than the soul of a football fan.
