It is hard to imagine a victory for Brazil on German soil, but they have the tools to make an impact against the second-best side on the planet.
However, with their focus in check, the hosts should run out winners on Tuesday night.
Even when they go out together, Brazilian couples tend to stay attached at the hip.
I had to remind my boyfriend to give me some space when we went out together – telling him that I would want to mingle with friends and other people, independent of him – I would remind him to “be more American” whenever we went out.
It is all based on my own experience and what I have heard from other people. And for independent North Americans, can even be considered clingy.
This was a fairly novel concept to my ex – because in Brazil, it’s strange to go out without one’s significant other – the guy knows that his girlfriend will likely get hit on and cannot stand that.
I have heard that if one goes out without their boyfriend or girlfriend in Brazil, it sends the message to other people that they are single.
In a recent census, Brazilians were asked for the first time to write in their “race” instead of checking a box for African or Caucasian.
The response led to over one hundred different categories, from “caramel” to “chocolate” to “café au lait.” While everyone can agree Brazilian women sound delicious, the truth is bare to the eyes: Brazilian women have an exotic beauty that is simply incomparable anywhere else in the world.
