Sao Paulo • The 2014 World Cup mascot is a yet to-be-named endangered Brazilian armadillo.
FIFA said Brazilians will have until mid-November to choose the name from three choices Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco. The announcement was made Sunday on a television show with help from former Brazil star Ronaldo.
"I'm delighted to welcome such an important member to the 2014 team," Ronaldo said. "The mascot will play a key ambassadorial role in the next two years. I'm sure he will inspire many young football fans in Brazil and all over the world with the great passion which he has for the sport and for his country."
