World Cup 2014 team profile: Brazil

BBC Sport profiles host nation Brazil ahead of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

The hosts are one of the favourites for the tournament and boast an 11-year unbeaten record on home soil, but Brazil will be looking to banish memories of hosting the 1950 World Cup, when they were beaten by Uruguay in the final game.

Brazil find themselves in Group A alongside Cameroon, Croatia and Mexico.
