Brazil will be the center of the world from June 12 to July 13, 2014, because of the World Cup which starts on Thursday.
African football fans will support their nations. They will be five at the Brazilian mass gathering. Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and Algeria will defend the honor of the African continent.
