Cariocas love their soccer. And it shows. Their country’s team is one of the best in the game, having claimed a record five World Cup victories. Brazil’s shrine to futebol is the colossal Maracanã Stadium. Here you can catch some of the world’s most exciting club team matches. The crowds are just as dedicated as the players: Spectators pound samba drums, wave team colors, and voice their disapproval over bad play. If you can’t attend a professional game, just stroll along the beach. You’re likely to see several pick-up football games. Join in if you’re feeling confident.
