Brazil’s national soccer team is one of the most skilled squads in the world. Consistently ranked in the top five in the world, they strike fear in the hearts of every opponent. So how did they warm up before a crucially important Confederation’s Cup match against Italy? By playing a rousing game of bingo.

In fact, they found the game (bingo, not soccer) so engrossing they were an hour late for their pre-game news conference. According to reports, a team spokesman appeared at the appointed hour to say: “The press conference will be delayed because bingo is not over yet.” And In case you were wondering how effective a good round of bingo can be as a warm-up, you should know that Brazil won the match over Italy, the world #4 ranked team by the way, by a dominant score of 3-0.
