NIKE Tour Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Brazil is the most successful national soccer team in the history of the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament, with five championships and most recently won the 2019 Copa America. The Brazil Women’s National team has also had some recent success, reaching the Round of 16 at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. A common quip about Brazilian soccer is: "Os ingleses o inventaram, os brasileiros o aperfeiçoaram" ("The English invented it, the Brazilians perfected it")! Brazil has also produced some of the world's best international players in the history of the game including Pelé, Zico, Romário, Roberto Carlso, Ronaldo, Ronaldihno and Kaká. This makes Brazil an almost perfect place for international soccer teams to travel to and learn more about the Brazilian style of soccer!
