Full coverage: World Cup 2014

Three days until the World Cup starts in Brazil. The Economist says in a new article that the true beauty of soccer lies in its reach, from east to west and north to south but now the game is also connecting different species.

Today in a Thai city, kids were taking on much much bigger opponents--elephants. The game ended in a 3-3 draw, and the fearless little soldiers put up quite a fight against their long-trunked competition.Two different sized balls were used during the game, but the elephants easily blasted numerous shots for the students to chase.

No one got hurt during the game--except several balls--squashed by the elephants. The amusing competition was held to remind kids about the fun of sports and that it doesn't matter how how big or small you are, you can enjoy the beautiful game.
