Brazil 2014 football mascot name row

Brazilians are split over the name of their 2014 World Cup mascot - Fuleco - after the name was chosen in an online voting competition which some say did not offer enough options.

Brazil's mascot for the 2014 World Cup is to be named 'Fuleco' after a public online voting competition.

But some Brazilians are not happy with the name, especially after many had signed an online petition asking FIFA to come up with more name options.
