World Cup 2014: What we can learn from Brazil

World Cup 2014: What we can learn from Brazil

As the eyes of the sporting world turn to Brazil, we thought we'd look at what makes the five-time World Cup winners so successful.

Stuart Owen has run Brazilian Soccer Schools in Harrogate since 2003.

The group was founded out of one man's despair for the direction English football was taking in the 1990s.

It aimed to encourage children here with the approach and ethos promoted by coaches in South America.

The school recently had its first graduate signed up by Harrogate Town, in Alex Metcalfe.

Stuart came in to Stray FM to talk about their approach and discuss what youngsters here could learn from the tournament in Brazil:
