New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been invited to witness the final of the Fifa World Cup 2014 currently being held in Brazil.

Modi has to travel to Brazil for a summit of BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) which will be held between 15 and 17 July in the city of Fortaleza. The World Cup final will be held in Rio de Janeiro on 13 July.

Given the proximity of the two events, the BRICS leaders have been invited by Brazil to the football final, the Brazilian Embassy said here on Monday. Last week, Modi had released commemorative postage stamps on the football World Cup.
