Watch: Brazil’s Players Dedicated The Victory In The Qatar World Cup To The Ailing Legend Pele

Brazilian footballers dedicated their win in the Qatar World Cup to the ailing legend Pele. Players from the Brazilian team held up a shirt with Pele’s name on it after their victory over Germany in the final. Neymar, who scored the winning goal, dedicated the victory to Pele in an emotional post-match interview.

Pele is considered one of the greatest footballers of all time and is a national icon in Brazil. He played for Brazil for almost 20 years, winning three World Cups. Pele has been suffering from poor health in recent years and was hospitalized earlier this month.

After cruising to a 4-1 World Cup victory over South Korea, Pele is currently being treated in a hospital in Sao Paulo for his failing health.

The players presented an enormous banner to the 82-year-old, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, following Monday’s last-16 match at Stadium 974 in Doha. to play the majority of the game. Brazil put the game to bed in the first half with goals from Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison, and Lucas Paqueta.

The players are motivated by Pele’s battle with colon cancer to try to win a record-extending sixth world title, the first three of which Pele was a part.

Neymar’s return—”I was afraid”—provided Brazil with a significant boost, and they were on fire from the opening kickoff.
Neymar’s penalty-kick goal in the 13th minute brought Brazil’s Neymar within one goal of Pele’s record 77 goals.

However, he acknowledged that he had briefly considered ending his World Cup when he was injured in Brazil’s first match against Serbia.

“I had a very difficult night when I got hurt. Neymar acknowledged that he had been “crying a lot” and that he had been “thinking of a million different things.”

“I had the support of all my teammates and my family, who gave me strength,” he said.

Neymar is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world and his presence on the field is a huge asset for any team. Richarlison paid tribute to Neymar, stating that his presence on the field facilitates the game for everyone else. Richarlison has scored three goals in the tournament so far and he believes that Neymar’s ability to draw away defenders creates space for other players to score.

Cesar Sampaio, the assistant coach, echoed Richarlison’s sentiments, stating that Neymar provides a competitive advantage and is the driving force behind Brazil’s success. There is no doubt that Neymar is a special talent and he has already proven himself as a key player for Brazil. With Neymar leading the charge, Brazil will be a tough team to beat in this year’s World Cup.

Richarlison also praised coach Tite’s decision to rest nearly the entire first team in their final group stage match, a 1-0 loss to Cameroon, which ended their chances of making it to the knockout rounds.

Richarlison stated, “You have to give credit to the boss.” “We played with intensity from the first minute, and that was because we rested a part of the team in the previous match.”

Due to Tite’s numerous substitutions, all 26 players have participated in the tournament, including third-choice goalkeeper Weverton, who played the final ten minutes against Korea.
