Pure optimism: 64% of Brazil says they will win the World Cup
With only two months remaining for the beginning of the XIX edition of the World Cup, Brazilians radiate confidence and over 64% of the population assures their succes in South Africa.
A survey by Datafolha and published by the newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo in 144 cities of Brasil makes it clear that although expectations are not the same as in the past, the vast majority said Dunga’s team will lift the FIFA World Cup on July 11th in Johannesburg.
At the same time, only 3% of the residents believe that Argentina will be the winner, while 2% cited the European champion Spain as favorites.
Brazil is the top winner of the World Cup in its history, with 5 titles won in Sweden 58, Chile 62, Mexico 70, U.S. 94, and Korea-Japan 2002.
