Manaus

Consistently described by the British media during the build-up as being "in the middle of the rainforest" you would be forgiven for thinking that the matches would be played in a small clearing before a crowd of tarantulas and anacondas. In fact it is a thriving metropolis much like any other and as usual the whole rainforest thing has been over-hyped to the point of lampoon.
