  • SAO PAULO — A Brazilian taxi driver gained international attention after he found and returned 40 World Cup tickets.Adilson Luiz da Cruz, 40, made the discovery after he drove several men to a hotel Thursday night in San Paulo, according to Yahoo Sports. The men were ticket scalpers and da Cruz said they appeared to be very drunk.When he dropped them off at their hotel, he discovered they had left a bag in the backseat of his taxi. The bag had 40 tickets to the World Cup for the Mexico-Cameroon and Spain-Netherlands matches."When I got home, I opened the back door of the taxi and found a bag with 40 (World Cup game) tickets inside it," da Cruz told infobae. "Sometimes these things fall into the hands of people who don’t worry about their items and that makes it more likely for them to lose it."Rather than selling the tickets himself, da Cruz drove back to the Nuevo São Paulo Morumbi Hotel and returned the tickets.
