As well as being the home of Jogo Bonito, Brazil has a history of political discord that so often in the past has impacted on football. The recent election of Jair Bolsonaro suggests a fundamental change in the political outlook and social attitudes of the nation, and it seems inevitable that this will impact on the game. Indeed, a number of famous Brazilian footballers voiced their support for Bolsonaro in the election, while others, both players and fan groups, have spoken out against him. How will this seismic political shift affect Brazilian football?
