Who wouldn't want that ? Well, the Yugoslavs certainly figured it's a very good idea:

For the game against them, Brazil welcomed a mini-invasion from Yugoslavia after a party of 270 players officials, journalists and assorted VIPs arrived ahead of the friendly international.

Asked to justify the size of his strange army of occupation, Yugoslavia coach Dejan Savicevic said: "This match is very important for us. We have brought enough players so we can bring on a lot of substitutes if we have problems dealing with the warm weather."

And, of course, if the weather really is hot, enough journalists to drink the bar dry by half-time.
