FRAMINGHAM — If you want to know how Brazilian immigrants in Framingham feel about the opening of soccer’s World Cup in their home country on Thursday, just ask the Rev. Volmar Scaravelli, who ministers to them at St. Tarcisius Church.
“People understand that for Brazilians — and really, many other people from South America — World Cup football is like your American-football Super Bowl,” said Scaravelli. “It is our game. The way it is played today originated in Brazil.”
