The World Cup takes place in Brazil this year. A Brazilian family watches the games. The family wants Brazil to win. The people in the family give energy to Brazil.

This family is also special. The members have six fingers on each hand and foot. They think that this will help Brazil win. If Brazil wins, it will be for the 6th time!

Difficult words: take place (happen), energy (positive thoughts), member (person), each (every).
