JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva says his country must learn from South Africa in order to host its own successful World Cup in four years.
Silva says “the success of our African brothers represents a tremendous challenge to the Brazilian people.”
He spoke as Brazil unveiled its official 2014 logo in a colorful ceremony on Thursday, attended by playing greats Carlos Alberto, Cafu and Romario, and staged a few miles (kilometers) from where the final match of South Africa’s tournament is played on Sunday.
Silva says Brazilians are confident, and love the challenge of presenting a beautiful World Cup.
Brazil’s logo is a World Cup trophy created by three linked hands in national colors of yellow and green.
