Nigeria were described as ‘inexperienced‘, ‘speed‘ and ‘tough‘, with Uruguay being labelled ‘bite‘, ”disgrace” and ‘do-or-die‘. Hosts Brazil were ‘emotional‘, ‘popular‘ and ‘desperate‘.
The multi-billion word database of written and spoken English language was designed to give an indication of how each team was perceived by media and fans alike.
