1. Warning: I know nothing about soccer (fútbol, if you please).

2. But even if I did, I’d like to give some of my loyalty to the team I recently discovered is challenging the World Champions to a game.

3. They’re from a Brazilian slum called “Anita Garibaldi”:

4. Anita has teamed up (pun, anyone?) with a local nonprofit (TECHO) to make a public challenge to whomever wins the World Cup.

8. In addition to the petition from the whole Anita team, they’ve just released a mini-story from one of their players, with hopefully more to come. This is Orley:

9. Way to go guys. I have signed the petition and will be socially sharing away (via #DesafioAnita — which means “Challenge Anita” in Spanish — on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). And I guess I’m into the World Cup now.
