I don't care who wins the World Cup for the sake of sport, but I am extremely curious to see how the mega event will impact the social conditions of Brazil.
Is it best for Brazil to win? Or maybe it's better for them to lose? If losing is better, should it be early on or later in the tournament?
There's no question of whether or not protests are going to happen, it's how and what will be the government's reaction.
The world is already watching, Brazil will be full of tourists, and they don't want to lose the 2016 Olympics - so the government is more accountable than any other time in history.
My wish is that Brazil, the country, wins -
much more importantly than who takes home the trophy.
