There are only two games left until the 2022 World Cup ends and one of the greatest stars of Brazilian soccer made a curious comment. Roberto Carlos regretted this Thursday the level of the Qatar World Cup because he considered that he had not had great matches, and also stated that he has no preferences in the final that Argentina and France will play.
“It has not been a World Cup with great matches. The teams that were not considered favorites have made things difficult for the favorites, Spain, Germany, Brazil and Uruguay. But if France and Argentina are in the final it means that they have done their job better. And we have to congratulate them. This is life”, he told reporters in Doha.
World champion with the ‘Canarinha’ in 2002, the last world title achieved by Brazil, Roberto Carlos participated this Thursday in a FIFA legends match in the Qatari capital. The former Real Madrid left-back maintained that he does not have a candidate for the title in the game that will be played at the Lusail stadium in Doha.
“I’m going to push to make it a great game. I don’t have a real preference, seriously. After Brazil came out, I don’t have a favorite team.”he assured.
Likewise, the 49-year-old former defender dribbled the question of whether he prefers Diego Armando Maradona or Lionel Messi, two of the greatest references in Argentine football: “I’m more of Pelé and Ronaldo, Vinicius Jr, Neymar!”
“Maradona was a great player. I’m still a big fan of Diego. Unfortunately he left but I was close to him. I really need to have him here by my side to talk about football, about life. And Messi is Messi. He is a great player, as well as Neymar and Cristiano, with a beautiful career in football. I don’t have a player preference“, he pointed.
