Adriana Lima: There is always 'football fever' in Brazil
Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima has claimed that 'there is always football fever' in Brazil and urged travelling fans to embrace the culture at the 2014 World Cup.
Speaking to Fifa.com, the model believes that Brazil will make 'a positive impression' on everyone who'll be taking part.
Miss Lima told the website: "It's a wonderfully diverse country with a rich cultural history that will be there for everyone to see during the tournaments."
"It's such an important part of our culture. There are lots of different reasons why people should come here, like the atmosphere, the style of football and the warm welcome you get from Brazilians."
Adriana Lima, a self-confessed sports fan, will also be involved in the draw for the Confederations Cup to be held in Brazil in 2013.
