Rio is a soccer (futebol) city. This whole country goes crazy whether it is during local or international tournaments. They yell and scream, cheer and dance when the favorite team wins. Little boys learn the foot skills necessary to play even as they learn to walk. There are informal games played on every beach and formal ones in every little town along the road. Do you know I do not have even one photo of a soccer match – if the words get out I will be banned from this country.
I have photos of swimmers, skaters and rowers, fishermen and bikers

My town Friday Shoot-out / Sports
but I don’t have even one photo of soccer for either fun nor fame.
