The 2014 Fifa World Cup begins today as hosts Brazil open the tournament against Croatia.

The month-long tournament sees 32 nations compete for a place in the final in Rio on Sunday, 13th July.

The opening match will be preceded by a ceremony in Sao Paulo that pays tribute to nature, people and football.

A capacity 65,000 crowd is expected for the match, with their journey to the stadium eased after metro workers voted not to resume a strike over pay and the dismissal of 42 colleagues.
