The United States men’s soccer team will train five miles from a popular bar in Brazil that is run by an Osama bin Laden impersonator. 

According to Yahoo Sports, “the drinking hole is apparently popular with goths and rockers and is situated in the run-down Anhangabaú neighborhood. That’s around five miles from the United States National Team’s World Cup base at São Paulo FC’s training facility.”

The Bar do Bin Laden is run by Ceará Francisco Helder Braga Fernandes, who “came to the attention of authorities when a customer claimed the world’s most wanted terrorist was hiding out in Brazil.” Police reportedly “laughed off the claims and he became a local celebrity for his likeness to the man who orchestrated the World Trade Center attacks.” Fernandes then “renamed his bar and began dressing like the terrorist” who has since been killed.
