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.
