Pelé’s emotional message to the Brazilian generation seeking the world title

The Brazilian team will play this Monday against South Korea the pass to the quarterfinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Within hours of the commitment, Edson Arantes do Nascimento popularly known as Pelé, left an emotional message for the generation that is looking for its first world title.

‘O Rei’, who is recovering from a lung infection derived from a COVID-19 infection and is undergoing treatment for colon cancer, recalled the moments he walked through the streets of Sweden, the country where the 1958 World Cup was played that ended with the ‘Canarinha’ lifting its first trophy, the first in its history.

“In 1958, I was walking the streets thinking about keeping the promise I made to my father. I know that today many have made similar promises and are also looking for their first World Cup.”, Pelé wrote in a post on Twitter.

The 82-year-old star also revealed that he will support the Brazil team from the hospital. “I will watch the game from the hospital and I will be supporting each one of you. Good luck!”added Pelé, who shared a postcard of him in Swedish lands.

The return of Neymar

The return of ‘Ney’, 30, is certain after missing the win against Switzerland (1-0) and the setback against Cameroon due to a sprained right ankle suffered in the victorious debut against Serbia (2-0).

The ‘Scratch’ coach, Tite, confirmed on Sunday that he would play. He was a resounding “yes”, although he later backed down and said that he would depend on him having a good last practice session before the game in the afternoon, and on the go-ahead from the doctors.
