The proof of the pudding is in the eating and I made my way yesterday to the FIFA ticket office to collect my tickets I bought online some time ago.
The crucial part of the visit was waiting long enough as the queues in the early days when the ticket office opened were hectic. Yesterday was a breeze and I walked right up to the counter and my tickets were instantly printed out.
So here they are. We are going to see Brazil vs Portugal. I have already bought my Brazil t.shirt!!
