Today was revealed the name of the ball that will be used at Brazil 2014: BRAZUCA. It's a common word in Brazil. Sometimes the brazilians call themselves as Brazucas. it's a nickename as Aussie ou Brit. The name was unveilled thissunday at Esporte Espetacular TV show. It's a Globo TV sportive show and was choosed in a poll in the internet for the football fans.

If we look at the older logos and mascots we can see a "FIFA standard". The ball is the same we can see at France 1998 logo. Leo, Zakumi and the brazilian mascot use a similar uniform. It's not great coz we can't see the free creativity from the host nation in the logos and mascots.
Hi guys I did read this new at VEJA site: http://veja.abril.com.br/blog/radar-on-line/futebol/veja-o-desenho-do-mascote-da-copa-de-2014/ (in portuguese) The tatu (armadillo) was choosed to be the mascot. The WC 2014 has a mascot! Can we believe in VEJA? I don't believe what this magazine show.
