This weekend four teams from Sao Paulo, Brazil have traveled to play in Schwan’s USA CUP at the same time their home country is hosting the 2014 World Cup.
The coincidence made for some hard decisions for a lot of teams that have attended in past years according to Schwan’s USA CUP International Recruiter, Colleen Bourdon. It unfortunately deterred a couple teams from coming this year.
The 2014 World Cup has captivated the hearts and minds of people across the world. Teams have brought joyous moments along with heartaches to viewers and fans.
One team that overachieved and has brought worldwide attention to their country with an unexpected run to the quarterfinals was Costa Rica, known to their fans as the “Ticos.”
