Brasil WC training camps

Post by mongrel hawk on Sun Feb 02, 2014 1:10 am

A list of all training camps with pictures and indications of city/state (in the bottom of the page). Iran will train in Corinthians grounds. USA will train in São Paulo FC grounds. Just a few kilometers from each other. I'm just happy there's no risk of a terrorist attack in my club. I'd worry if I was a São Paulo supporter.

By the way, USA came to spend some weeks there. They played an unofficial game against São Paulo and lost 2-1. This game was supposed to be a secret, no press allowed, but the score leaked.

And here an interesting article about the literal meaning of the Brazilian states' names (in English). Many states have Tupi-Guarani names (native Brazilian languages) and I didn't know their meaning until now (I reckon the same happens in USA, where many states have North American indian names).
