A man controls the ball as he plays 'altinho' on the Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Saturday, May 31, 2014. Altinho is a popular local game that is played with a soccer ball on the beach. The goal is not to let the ball drop, but passing to other players while keeping it airborne. The international soccer tournament is set to begin in just a few weeks, with Brazil and Croatia competing in the opening match on June 12. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana) less
