Brazil soccer is ranked #1 in the worlda by FIFA as of October 2022. The Seleção trains at Granja Comary in Teresópolis, but plays at various stadiums throughout Brazil.
We are famous for Ginga, a joyful, creative style of play that is related to capoeira, the Afro-Brazilian martial art. Pelé, one of the greatest soccer players of all time played this way. Ronaldinho had Ginga and so does Neymar today. Ginga is the African spirit in us.
We returned to winning form since Tite, the former Corinthians (São Paulo) manager, took over in June 2016.
Our arch-rivals are Argentina. We like to argue with them over who loves soccer more.
