Background: A tumultuous welcomes awaited the victorious Brazilian footballers when they arrived back from Sweden with the World Cup. Sao Paulo went wild with delight - so did Rio. Both cities had been preparing a carnival welcome since the final whistle of the deciding game against Sweden. Thousands packed Sao Paulo airport as the footballer's plane landed and the busy city took a few hours off work to celebrate with a carnival procession. Several of the decorated floats carried a football motif - and the usual Brazilian beauty queens were there for variety's sake.
At Rio, crowds paraded behind the footballers' coaches to the Presidential Palace, where President Kubitschek welcomed each of the team individually. Afterwards, they were decorated with a sports order that had been specially given for the occasion.
