Brazilians Not So Soccer Mad After All Report Suggests

41

ZURICH – Brazil’s reputation as a soccer-mad country has been dented by a report which found that only 60 percent of those interviewed said they were interested in the sport.

The United Arab Emirates came top of a table compiled by global information, data and measurement company Nielsen Sports which ranked 30 countries according to the percentage of the population who described themselves as interested in football.

The UAE, where the figure was 80 percent, was followed by Thailand (78 percent) and Chile, Portugal and Turkey (all 75) while five-times world champions Brazil ranked a modest 13th.
