Today marks the exciting start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. This will be the 20th World Cup to date and is taking place in Brazil, who was officially elected as the host nation in October 2007.

In 2003 it was announced that tournament would be held in South America. Brazil and Colombia put themselves forward as hosts, but when Colombia withdrew their candidacy, Brazil was left unopposed. This will be the second time Brazil has hosted the World Cup with the previous time they hosted was back in1950.

In order to find out how many people in Britain know about Brazil, we asked 1,000 people to name the capital of Brazil…the results were very revealing.

Apparently the majority of us don’t know the capital of Brazil. The most popular answer was Rio de Janeiro and a staggering 46% of people gave the wrong answer. The correct answer is in fact Brasilia and 41% of individuals got this right. People all across the world will be watching the match between Brazil and Croatia tonight. With so many eyes on Brazil, it would good if we knew a bit more about the country.

During the 2014 World Cup, there are total of 64 matches being played across twelve cities in Brazil. According to the BBC, 13.5 million people tuned in to watch England get defeated in the 2010 World Cup! Spain won narrowly by beating the Netherlands 1–0 during a nail-biting match. The anticipation is mounting whether the defending champions will lift the trophy once more. But with so many good teams across all the groups, the game is wide open! Check out the chances of each team in Travelbag’s World Cup quizzes. We are looking forward to every minute of it!
