There are few bet­ter coun­tries in which to ex­pe­ri­ence the World Cup than Brazil. Foot­ball dom­i­nates ev­ery­day life so com­pletely that noth­ing else mat­ters while A Sele­cao are still in with a chance of win­ning the global game’s most pres­ti­gious prize. Ev­ery­where, it seems, ex­cept in the Bom Pas­tor district of Rio de Janeiro, where one Brazil sup­porter couldn’t tear him­self away from a pan of melted choco­late to watch his coun­try draw 1-1 with Switzer­land. Eyes down!
