Four years after Brazil won the last World Cup in Japan, the greatest tournament in the World started again. The Opening Ceremony was nice and colourful, with a very good show of cultural expressions and World Champions parade.

German model Claudia Schiffer and Former Brazilian footballer Pele carried the World Cup Trophy to the center of the Stadium, marking the begining of the show.

FIFA's president Joseph Blatter, Franz Beckenbauer and Germany's president Horst Köhler gave the entry speech in the Ceremony.

After that, many World Cup winners from England, France, Argentina, Italy, Germany and Brazil walked into the pitch to receive a warm ovation.

And the Ceremony finished with a musical piece by Herbert Gronemeyer and an African pop Group. The passion of football was greatly expressed in the show. Now the ball will kick off and millions of fans will keep the track.
