There was a lot of debate about whether they'd ever actually be finished, but Brazil's stadiums are ready and waiting for the big kick-off in a week's time.

So much so that they've even let the Google cameras in to take a look around; the result is the opportunity to virtually emulate Steven Gerrard and the boys by stepping onto the pitch at any of the 12 grounds that will be used for the tournament. In addition, there's also the chance to view Brazil's iconic painted streets, alongside some other beautiful areas of the country, including Iguaçu National Park and St. Michael of the Missions.
