South African students sneak in to watch Brazil

Brazil players are keeping their distance from the team's fans during their World Cup preparations in South Africa, although a few local students managed to catch a glimpse of the squad
Brazil is hoping to avoid a repeat of the atmosphere that players blamed for the team's elimination four years ago in Germany, and only journalists are allowed access to the team in South Africa. But in the team's first full practice session in South Africa on Friday, a few dozen students and school employees were able to get near the field after sneaking into a local school where the team is training.
Teacher Xander Vandyk said it was a "privilege" to have the five-time world champions playing at the school.
