Along with Kobe, although not together, Nash made his way down to Brazil with travel company Beck & Score, according to an interview with Mashable:

Yeah, I’m going down there with a travel company called Beck & Score on Tuesday for 12 days. I’ll be in Sao Paulo for one game, but mostly Rio — hanging out and seeing a few games but mostly just trying to enjoy the atmosphere. You could definitely say I’m fired up.

Nash let it be known that he’ll be rooting for England and Brazil during the World Cup. Nash’s native Canada was unable to qualify for the tournament, but Nash’s English ties have him pulling for Wayne Rooney and company while also hoping the host country does well. Kobe has also said that he hopes Brazil does well.
