Brazil World Cup team calls in psychologist after Chile match tears | FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
Luiz Felipe Scolari uses counselling before quarter-final against Colombia amid widespread criticism of emotional display
Juan Bona's insight:

The coaching staff of Brazil, headed by Luis Felipe Scolari, decided to contract a psychologist to improve the squad's mental health. The professional is called Regina Brandão and she will try to lift the mood of the 23 players. The need for a specialist came after the game in which Brazil beat Chile in a narrow victory on penalties. Finished that game, some players cried. This situation showed the pressure that exists after the last World Cup organized in Brazil was won by Uruguay.

A trip back to Neymar’s roots

A trip back to Neymar’s roots | FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
In the build-up to Brazil’s quarter-final with Colombia, FIFA.com goes back to where it all started for Neymar with a video looking at A Seleção’s master goalscorer and dribbler.
Juan Bona's insight:

One of the cracks present in this World Cup is definitely Neymar. The brazilian started playing football in the streets of the neighborhood of Jardim Gloria Praia Grande. His old house is located on Rua B of this city near São Paulo. In his childhood he was called the "attacker at the bottom of the slope" for his propensity to stay close to the goal to score. In the same neighborhood, Ney was to cut his hair with the famous Mohawk style. In this place the crack then passed through Santos and currently plays for Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo 60 Second Player Profile | Brazil 2014 World Cup - YouTube

Juan Bona's insight:

The video shows a profile of the chosen best player in the world of 2013 and probably of this year: Cristiano Ronaldo. Although the soccer is a team sport, the big players are indispensable in their selections. Ronaldo led Portugal to the World Cup with his important goals to Sweden and so leave out Zlatan Ibrahimović. CR7 will be essential in Brazil 2014.

Juan Bona's insight:

The police suppressed the protest near to the Mané Garrincha National Stadium. Demonstrators were more than 1000 and said that the stadiums built to host the World Cup were too costly. This caused the property prices to go up and that lower income families abandoned their homes.

Luis Suárez free to undertake a medical for any transfer, says Fifa

Luis Suárez free to undertake a medical for any transfer, says Fifa | FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
Luis Suárez would be allowed to have a medical before an transfer under the terms of his four-month ban for biting
Juan Bona's insight:

Luis Suarez, the Liverpool's Uruguayan striker, would have allowed a medical review to make his transfer to Barcelona possible. Suarez is banned by FIFA for four months for biting Chiellini in the game when Uruguay beat Italy 1-0. This penalty does not let you play any game in that period but can be negotiated. This was confirmed by Claudio Sulser, the head of FIFA's disciplinary committee. He said: "The player can not have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer yes - the sanction is not linked to transfer rights."

Juan Bona's insight:

The definition to access the second place in Group C and thus reach the second round was dramatic. The narrow victory of Greece 2-1 over Côte d'Ivoire qualified for the europeans, who will play against Costa Rica. Africans ended their performance in the World Cup. The match will be defined with a penalty in extra time of the second half. Giovanni Sio fouled Giorgios Samaras inside the goal area. The greek striker kicked from the twelve steps and scored a historic goal.

World Cup 2014: Franck Ribery RULED OUT for France and will play no part in Brazil

World Cup 2014: Franck Ribery RULED OUT for France and will play no part in Brazil | FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
France’s World Cup ambitions were dealt a significant blow yesterday when winger Franck Ribéry failed to overcome a back injury and was ruled out of the squad.
Juan Bona's insight:

The back injury Ribéry left him out of the World Cup. The crack of Bayern Munich tried until last moment to recovered but then the results of the medical studies decided not to participate in Brazil. The coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, replaced him with Rémy Cabella (Montpellier midfielder). Deschamps said: "Obviously with Ribéry at 100 per cent we're a better team, but we'll try and be a good team without him."

How The 2014 FIFA World Cup Became The Worst Publicity Stunt In History

How The 2014 FIFA World Cup Became The Worst Publicity Stunt In History | FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
The World Cup was supposed to illustrate Brazil's entrance into the global stage. That hasn't quite gone as planned.
Juan Bona's insight:

The economic and financial situation in Brazil deteriorated dramatically since they began preparations for the World Cup. Until 2007 (when it was announced as the host), the government had achieved growth never seen before. Lula da silva wanted to use the tournament to show their evolution to the other countries but ended up costing the government an amount close to 11.7 billion dollars.

Maria Victoria's curator insight, June 3, 2014 7:51 PM

While being chosen the host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup was supposed to be a positive thing for Brazil and its worlwide image, facts are proving quite the opposite thing since the past few months. This article basically shows what went wrong along the way, since 2007, when this country was awarded the title of being the host city for this major event.
