Orderly celebration


Brazilians celebrated -- again -- in downtown Framingham today after their national team beat Ghana, 3-0, in the World Cup.

Expect more festivities Saturday and, if the team advances to the final, next Wednesday.

But not everybody in the Brazilian community is joining in the fun. Correspondent Eduardo A. de Oliveira reports in Sunday's Globe West that some Brazilian immigrants are worried that a chance encounter with police could get them sent back to Brazil.
