Brazil – Lebanon : Football for peace

Brazil president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has suggested that Brazil should play another peace match, this time in Lebanon, following their visit to strife-torn Haiti to play a friendly in 2004.
“Lebanon needs the Brazilian team,” he said. “Maybe it’s time ….. to play a game in Lebanon for peace.” He also said that the country needed to build at least 12 new football stadiums if it wanted to host the 2014 World Cup.
