  THE TAPESCRIPT

The heart of every Brazilian beats faster when the World Cup Finals come. Every fours years, we all believe we will be world champions again. We are the most successful side in the world – ever. We’re the only team to have played in every single tournament and the only side to have won five trophies. We are football crazy. We play the most beautiful football in the world. The best footballer ever was from Brazil – of course everyone knows his name – Pele. We are so proud of our Brazilian team. They are all heroes. We are all looking forward to some great games. We should beat North Korea quite easily. The game against Portugal will be great. The final will also be amazing, but we don’t know who Brazil will play yet.
