Sao Paulo: The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) says the Brazilian national league, the Campeonato Brasileiro, was the second strongest in 2012.

The Brazilian football tournament climbed to second place thanks to Corinthians' success in the World Club Cup, reports Xinhua.

"The Brazilian, German, Italian and English leagues are at the same level, but the Brazilian division takes second place due to Corinthians' participation in the World Club Cup. Without these 34 points, the German and Italian championships would be in front of the Brasileiro," an IFFHS spokesman said Tuesday.
