"Copa de Mundo" was Held

I would not be biased if I say that World Championship was held in Brazil. Unfortunately, the time passed quickly. It happens so, you wait for the first forum of World football for 4 years and as Brazilians call “Copa de Mundo” ends in a month.

The fact that the FIFA World Cup was hold in Brazil, speaks for itself. Before its start, there were talks about that the country was not ready for such a big forum. Perhaps, there were small problems in organizing side, but overall it is nothing to compare with those hundreds of thousands of fans, who saw this. Some of the matches beat the record of TV audience of some countries.

On the final day of World Cup security measures are enhanced near “Maracana”. You have to walk quite a long distance to reach the stadium. Besides journalists, the police let only ticket holders enter the territory. The military police helicopters are patrolling in the sky. It is natural because lots of officials from different countries will attend the final.
