1. Benfica to Brazil: a summer of football…

With 22 days, 10 hours, 43 minutes and 3 seconds left until the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil begins, it seemed like a good time to launch my new blog charting an incredible year of football following, from my arrival in Lisbon, Portugal in late December, through to my (almost certainly unsuccessful) attempts to be at the World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro on July 13th.

I leave Lisbon in 9 days, arriving in Salvador, eastern Brazil, with a suitcase full of Panini stickers, books on football, my laptop, two tickets for a World Cup match in Rio, (which I won’t be going to), and a youth hostel which may or may not exist, but which is throwing me out the day before the matches begin anyway.

This is going to be fun…
