269: Pick-up with flag
The Brazilian national soccer squad was very successful in 1994, 1998, and 2002. However, the squad had a disappointing tournament in 2006. In 201o, Brazilians expected their heroes to win their sixth world title in South Africa. Rumo ão hexa, was the slogan. The team had a slow start in the group phase, but many people still believed in another world title. Until the quarterfinal against the Netherlands, when the Dutch squad won this duel. Before and during the football World Cup, the colors green, yellow, and blue dominated the streets. Also the cars were decorated with the colors of the national flag. Like the hood of this pickup in Ouro Preto.
