Brazil's rising prices ahead of the World Cup
28 April 2014 Last updated at 10:11 BST
With little over a month until kick-off, the spotlight is very much on Brazil right now.
The country won the right to host the World Cup during a period of huge economic growth but since then, that growth has been spluttering.
Economists expect the economy to grow just 2% this year, compared with more than 7% in 2010.
And one of the biggest issues the country is facing at the moment is rising prices - inflation remains stubbornly high at around 6%.
