SOCCER MUSEUM FOR BRAZIL

SAO PAULO - In Brazil, soccer is considered an art-form. So it is only fitting that the sport Brazilians call "the beautiful game" gets its own museum.

SAO PAULO - In Brazil, soccer is considered an art-form. So it is only fitting that the sport Brazilians call "the beautiful game" gets its own museum.

This is the land that produced football greats such as Garrincha, Zico, Romario, Ronaldo, Kaka, and the most famous of all, Pele. In fact, the list is endless.

But until now, Brazil has never had a truly national museum honouring the sport that has become synonymous with Brazilian culture.

That changed last month when the Museu do Futebol, or Football Museum, opened at Pacaembu Stadium in Sao Paulo. - Reuters
