THE new mascot for the Brazil World Cup 2014 has been revealed.
But the three banded armadillo was revealed by footballing legend Ronaldo but is yet to be named – with a competition running to select between Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco.
Although he doesn’t yet have a name, Goaltastic can reveal that the animal has a love of dancing, has a favourite food of cashew nuts, and celebrates scoring a goal with a special ‘armadillo roll’ celebration.
Ronaldo said: “I’m delighted to welcome such an important member to the 2014 team.
“The mascot will play a key ambassadorial role in the next two years. I’m sure he will inspire many young football fans in Brazil and all over the world with the great passion which he has for the sport and for his country.”
