The Roots of Football

The soul of football is in the Amazon

Far from the glamor of FIFA standards, the Amazon region uses all its imagination for the game never to end.

For people in the area, the river can be relentless. This is because the depth of the river can vary up to 16 meters in height. When the rainy season starts in the Amazon, the landscape can change very quickly.

But rain or shine, the Brazilian always finds a way to continue playing football.
