His name is Zakumi, a leopard cute that symbolizes the people, geography and spirit of South Africans. The name has a reason for being: "ZA" means South Africa in the local language, and "Kumi" is number 10 in several African dialect s. The mascot was created by Andries Odendaal, born in Cape Town. Look at that f igure: The mascots of the World Cup since the 1966 World Cup, every FIFA World C up featured a mascot. This character serves to promote and represent in a fun an d informative to the great event of world football. Typically it represents one or more important aspects of the culture of the host country. The mascots are in any large event, the World Cup could not be different. The World Cup is an even t seen with billions of people and involving billions of dollars. Do you know th e origin of the word mascot? In the 1860s the Provencal word "Damascus" was used for what is defined today as a mascot. The mascots have become in the twentieth century a powerful tool to boost sales of products related to events and to cha racterize them. The first mascot of World Cup Willie was the lion. Interestingly this year the Germans have adopted a lion, Goleo VI. Willie also appeared in th e official poster of the World Cup for England with his shirt with the flag of t he United Kingdom, Union Jack. Willie is considered the most famous mascot of al l World Cups. The 1970s were marked by the humanization of pets in the World Cup . In Mexico in 1970 the mascot chosen was Juanito, one boy with Caucasian featur es with a sombrero and a ball.€In 1974, the two mascots were Tip and Tap, two bo ys in the uniform of the selection of West Germany. One had the initials of the World Cup in Germany (WM - Weltmeisterschaft) in a shirt and another year's Worl d Cup (74). In 1978, Gauchito was chosen for the World Cup in Argentina. Again a boy wearing the shirt of the local selection and regional characteristics. The 1980s have changed the design of mascots. An orange and pepper with a sombrero w ere the mascots of the decade. In 1982, Naranjito was the first fruit as a masco t at the World Cup. The orange shirt with the Spanish team was very successful b ecause it is simple. In addition to being printed on various products to laranji nha Cup Cup staged a series of cartoons on Spanish television. In the revival of the 1980s Naranjito appears with one of the symbols of the 80s. The strange Piq ue was the mascot chosen for the World Cup in Mexico 1986. Pique was a pepper wi th a mustache wearing the colors of local selection and a typical Mexican sombre ro. In 1990 tried to create a mascot for the World Cup than Italy. Ciao is proba bly the most bizarre mascot of all World Cups. Ciao is a tricolor doll simulatin g a football player. In addition to the flags of Italy for his entire body, Ciao had a football head. Nevertheless, Ciao was very successful at that time too. S triker The dog was chosen as mascot for the 1994 World Cup in the United States. Striker dressed in the colors of U.S. flag. In 1998 the French chose the rooste r Footix. The rooster is the symbol of the country and was a Footix Galo blue co lor of the shirt of the French team. In 90 years has intensified the use of masc ots in various promotional materials, without counting on advertising the event on phone cards, stamps and all kinds of parts to promote the World Cup. Followin g a trend of having more than a mascot for the 1990 event, the tournament in Sou th Korea had the strange

Ato, Nik and Kaz. It would be natural that the first World Cup in two different countries had the same two mascots. The 2006 World Cup mascot is the lion Goleo VI. A lion of 2 meters and 30 centimeters tall and 18 years. Goleo wears the shi rt of Germany 06 years in reference to the World Cup and has the company Pille, a talking football. Unlike other mascots Goleo VI is not a drawing. The strategy of most mascots per event increases product sales, but hinders the memory of th e event. The mascots of the cups 1.

he second time. In 1970, in Mexico, with a team of great players (Pele, Tostao, Rivelino, Carlos Alberto Torres and others), Brazil became the third time world champion when he beat Italy by 4-1. By becoming a triple champion, Brazil has wo n the right to remain in possession of the final Jules Rimet trophy. After the t itle of 1970, Brazil entered a fast of 24 years without a title. The conquest oc curred again in 1994 at the World Cup in the United States. Led by striker Romar io, our team defeated Italy in a thrilling penalty shootouts.

History of Football Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. Pra cticed in hundreds of countries, this sport so interesting because of its attrac tive form of dispute. Although origin of football has not quite sure about the e arly days of football, historians have discovered traces of ball games in many a ncient cultures. These ball games were still not football, because there was no definition of rules as there are today, but show the man's interest in this type of sport since ancient times. Football has become so popular thanks to their si mple way of playing. Just a ball, players and teams of the beams, so that in any space, children and adults can have fun with football. On the street, at school , club, soccer field in the neighborhood or even in the backyard, from early you th from all corners of the world begin to practice football. Origins of football in Ancient China In ancient China, around 3000 BC, the Chinese military practic ed a game that was actually a military training. After the war, formed teams to kick the heads of enemy soldiers. Over time, the heads of enemies were replaced by balls of leather lined with hair. They formed two teams with eight players an d the goal was to pass the ball standing on foot without dropping to the ground, taking her to within two stakes driven into the field. These piles were connect ed by a strand of wax. Origins of football in Ancient Japan in Ancient Japan, wa s created a sport much like soccer nowadays, but was called Kemar.€Practiced by members of the court of the Japanese emperor, the kemari happened in a field of approximately 200 square feet. The ball was made of bamboo fibers and between th e rules, physical contact was forbidden among the 16 players (8 for each team). Historians football match reports confirming the occurrence of matches between t eams in ancient Chinese and Japanese. Origins of football in Greece and Rome The Greeks created a game around the first century BC it was called Episkiros. In t his game, Greek soldiers were divided into two teams of nine players each, playe d on a rectangular field. In the Greek city of Sparta, players, also military, u sed a ball made from a cow's bladder filled with sand or earth. The field where the games were held in Sparta, were very great because the teams were formed by

fifteen jogadores.Quando the Romans ruled Greece, came into contact with Greek c ulture and ended up assimilating Episkiros, but the game took a connotation much more violent. Football in the Middle Ages There are reports of a sport much lik e soccer, although it used many violence. The Soule Harpastum or was practiced b y the military in middle age that were divided into two teams: attackers and def enders. Were allowed to use punches, kicks, sweeps and other violent blows. Ther e are reports that show the death of some players during the match. Each team co nsisted of 27 players, where groups had different functions in time: hallways, f ront, drawers and a goalkeeper. Italy appeared in a game called Medieval gioco d el calcio. It was practiced in squares and the 27 players from each team should bring the ball up the two posts that were in the two extreme corners of the squa re. The violence was very common, as participants took to their field problems c aused mainly by social issues typical of medieval times. The noise, disruption a nd violence were so great that King Edward II had to enact a law banning the pra ctice of the game, condemning the arrest practitioners. However, the game is not over, because members of the aristocracy created a new version of it with rules that would prevent the violence. In this new version, about a dozen judges shou ld enforce the rules of the game. Football comes to England Researchers concluded that the gioco calcio left Italy and arrived in England in the seventeenth century. In England, won the game dif ferent rules and was organized and systematized. The field should measure 120 by 180 meters and would be installed on both ends of two rectangular arches called goal. The ball was leather and filled with air. With clear and objective rules, football began to be practiced by students and children of the English nobility . He gradually become more popular. In 1848, a conference in Cambridge, estabele ceuse a single code of rules for football. In the year 1871 was created by the g oalkeeper (goalie) that would be the one who could get their hands on the ball a nd should be near the goal to prevent the entry of the ball. In 1875, we establi shed the rule of time of 90 minutes and in 1891 established the penalty spot to punish a foul in the area. Only in 1907 was established the offside rule. The pr ofessionalism in football only started in 1885 and the following year would be s et up in England, the International Board, an organization whose main objective was to establish and change the rules of football when needed. In 1897, an Engli sh soccer team called Corinthians made a tour outside of Europe, to help spread the football around the world. In 1888, the Football League was founded with the goal of organizing tournaments and international championships. In 1904, was cr eated to FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) which organize s the football today worldwide.
