We travel to Sao Paulo, one of the biggest cities on the planet to explore the issues facing Brazil as they prepare to host the next world cup in 2014.

Brazil have problems on the pitch too and Carlos Alberto Torres, who captained them to World Cup Glory in 1970, explains what he feels is wrong with the current side. He wants to see more flair and creativity.

We're in Barcelona to see how the Catalans, who want independence from Spain reacted to winning the World Cup and he how the football philosophy of the regain has changed the nation teams fortunes.

Football development is the top priority in South Africa, after the World Cup, but we'll hear about the FIFA Goal projects in East Africa, that are failing to get off the ground.

Plus reaction from FIFA from their Director of Development Thierry Regenass.
