The wonderful thing in the nature of soccer teams with Latin - South America - Portuguese spirit is that the players can feel more free and they can combine more of their technique, creativity and love in the game.

No matter if they're famous, or how good they are, just if they try to do the game more interesting..it's good enough!

It's great that the Latin people all around the world have their own soccer tournament. I hope it will get more coverage by other communities around the world in the next time..
