The sport of football, the most popular in the world, is under threat as global powers attempt to crack the global elite.
The World Cup, an event that has already brought together the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, is being played in the capital, Brasilia.
In the process, the world is becoming more aware of the sport’s dangers, with the sport increasingly attracting the attention of governments around the world.
The sport of soccer has been called a dangerous game by Fifa and FIFA chief executive Gianni Infantino, but this year it is being used as a tool for governing.
The tournament will feature four teams from South America, one from Russia and one from Africa.
It is also the biggest event in the history of the game in terms of spectators, with around 1.3 billion watching the matches.
It is an event, however, that has been largely neglected by governments and sports organisations across the world in the name of the Olympics, World Cup and Paralympics.
“Football is a highly contested sport,” said Paul Schlemmer, the director of the London-based Sport International think tank.
“It’s also the most expensive sport in the sport.
And that’s just not good for the sport.”
The sport is at a critical juncture.
Fifa has said it will host the 2022 World Cup in Russia, but there are fears that the host nation may not deliver on its commitment to host the event.
The 2022 World Championship will take place in 2018, which could see FIFA withdraw from the competition.
The other big issue for governments is that it is not only the games that are attracting the big money, it is also that the money is being spent in the way that it has not been in the past.
The world’s elite have spent billions of dollars on stadiums and training facilities, and are spending billions more on players.
The most expensive stadiums are located in the richest nations, such as Qatar and India.
The Olympic Games are also under scrutiny.
The bidding process for the 2024 Summer Olympics has been plagued by corruption scandals and concerns over the financial implications of hosting the event in such a poor country.
The World Cup is being held on a day when the world economy is already struggling.
The stock market has been on a downward spiral and is now trading at its lowest level in three years.
In addition, the government of Brazil is facing accusations that it will lose the World Cup to Russia, the host of the 2018 Olympics, if the country does not meet a debt repayment deal with the Russian government.
“We are not in a position to do anything to reduce the risk,” FIFA president Gianni Moratti said in Rio de Janeiro.
“The World Cups are a global event, they are not just a World Cup.
It’s about the world that participates.”
The World Championships, which will be played in Rio, Brazil, in 2022, is expected to generate $US1.5 billion ($1.9 billion) in ticket sales, according to research by sports-fans.
The stadiums will be full, with over 1.4 million spectators expected to be there.
The game is expected, in the coming months, to be the subject of an international debate.
Many are sceptical of the risk and many have called for the tournament to be moved to the United States.
“There are many of us who feel that the World Cups should be moved and that the best way to do that is to host them in the US,” FIFA executive committee member Michel Platini said.
The Games are scheduled to be held in Rio in 2018.
But despite the protests, FIFA will hold the event anyway.
The IOC said in a statement that it remains committed to the 2022 Winter Games in Russia.
“In our view, the World Championship is the best and the most significant sporting event that the world can host, and we are actively looking forward to hosting the Games,” the IOC said.
