2014 World Cup: Despite Challenges, Tournament Has Been a Success for the U.S. and Brazil

2014 World Cup: Despite Challenges, Tournament Has Been a Success for the U.S. and Brazil

Despite the turmoil in Brazil leading up to the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the tournament has been largely successful.

There were many challenges prior to the start of the international competition, and Brazil's issues are complicated. Some of the facilities and upgrades to the country’s infrastructure still have not been fully completed. The government came under criticism for the demolition of low-income settlements known as favelas, and even the legendary Pele took a hit to his image when he inserted his opinion into the matter. Poverty, organized crime, drug trafficking and gang violence plague the country. Yet street protests, a cause of much concern prior to the World Cup, have been kept to a minimum. This is surely a sign of relief to FIFA, the governing body of the sport.
