Brazil superfan wears only team colours for 20 years | inside World Soccer

There are those who will wear their country's shirt during the World Cup. And then there's Brazil superfan Nelson Paviotti.

For the past 20 years, Paviotti has dressed only in the yellow, green, blue and white colours of the Brazilian flag.

The Brazilian lawyer has also painted his entire house (inside and out), his cars, and even the footpath outside his home.

"I'm a patriot who just loves Brazil, that loves this land and loves its people," Paviotti explained to Reuters.

"I'm full of hope that Brazil will have a great future, a brighter future, a future that will give people a better life."

Paviotti's devotion to this technicolour life started in 1994, when he swore an oath to only wear the colours of the Brazilian flag everyday if the Seleção won the World Cup.

Brazil beat Italy to become the first four-time winners, and 20 years later Paviotti remains true to his word.

He added: "It wasn't really madness, it was desperation. It had been 24 years since we'd won a World Cup."
