Dentist from Brazil is now the person who has gone to the most World Cups

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

They say success in life is about showing up. For 75-year-old Brazilian dentist Daniel Sbruzzi, showing up to Qatar meant a new record - his 11th World Cup. Guinness World Records says he's now the person who's gone to the most World Cups. Sbruzzi wears women's outfits to Brazil's games for good luck.
