The mascot of the 2014 World Cup is a yet to-be-named endangered armadillo. FIFA said Brazilians will have until mid-November to choose the name from three choices — Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco.
The announcement was made on Sunday on a television show with the participation of former Brazil star Ronaldo.
The three-banded armadillo, which is in danger of extinction, rolls up into the shape of a ball when threatened and is commonly found in northeastern Brazil.
The mascot carries the colours of the Brazilian flag. It is yellow, with green shorts and a blue shell and tail.
