Still struck by the pain of Brazil’s goodbye, the 21-year-old attacker spoke on social networks a day after the game. “I am sorry. Without a doubt the most painful moment of my career, from heaven to hell in a matter of minutes. It was exactly how I always asked it not to be. I know that everything passes and, although at the moment I still don’t have the strength to get up, I’m sure I’ll be back, I don’t know how, but I’ll be back and much stronger”, wrote the paulista in an Instagram post.

Rodrygo, likewise, was grateful to the people who directly supported him and the Brazilian team, which was left with the desire to get the sixth star in the history of the World Cups.

“21 years, nothing has been easy so far and it won’t be, but it will be worth it! Thank you to everyone who encouraged us and believed in us, thank you my God for everything and sorry for being ungrateful after all you have done for me, I keep asking myself why me? why did it have to be like this? Only those who were with me saw everything I went through this year to get to the World Cup well and why did I want to end like this? I can’t understand it, but then I start to remember everything and I see that I can’t complain about anything and I continue to do my best in everything like I always did! Once again, thank you all and that in 2026 everything will be different, I still believe that we will continue to be very happy! This generation is very good, deserves and needs to be crowned. Beloved Homeland, Brazil”he added.
