New Delhi:

The Sao Paolo football team from Brazil is in India for the Super Soccer football series that gets underway on Saturday. It's the club that's given birth to footballers like Cafu and Kaka and that's won three World Club Championships. The tournament, being revived after 17 years, features five Indian clubs including East Bengal and Mohun Bagan, in addition to Sao Paulo. "In soccer, it's never easy. Soccer is the most democratic sport in the world. Some times you think it is easy, but you never know." "Yeah I agree that my team is better but still that's the best part about the game of football, it's full of surprises," said Marco Avrelio Cunha, Manager-cum-Doctor, Sao Paolo Club. The reigning Brazilian League champions are making their third visit to India although the current bunch of players, with an average age of 22, are visiting the country for the first time. This is a mix of Sao Paulo's A and B teams and there is more on their Indian agenda than just the beautiful game and beautiful monuments. So football fans still heart broken about Brazil's dismal performance at the World Cup can cheer up as the Samba boys are in town, all geared to kick it off against the Indian superheroes.
