Armadillo World Cup 2014 mascot: Amijubi, Fuleco or Zuzeco?


Well, at least that's what Fifa said that Brazilians will have until mid-November to choose the mascot's name from three choices - Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco. (Previous Fifa World Cup mascots can be found here.)

The use of a three-banded armadillo for the next World Cup mascot is really appropriate as it's a a vulnerable species and therefore, in line to 2014 Fifa World Cup's goal to use the event as a platform to communicate the importance of the environment and ecology.
