Manchester United defensive midfielder Casemiro feels Brazil are ready to clinch the World Cup.
Casemiro wants to give his country people ‘the joy and happiness of winning a World Cup’, like he experienced as a kid 20 years ago.
“I think it’s widely acknowledged that it’s the most important competition in the world. Everyone just stops what they’re doing to watch the matches, especially the ones involving Brazil,” he said.
“The really important thing here is to be able to give the Brazilian people the joy and happiness of winning a World Cup, because we know that there is just so much passion for football in Brazil.
“There are always differences in the world and in the country, differences in class, differences in everything, but when you talk about Brazilian football, football in Brazil is when everyone unites and gets together.
“So without a doubt, it’s a privilege first and foremost, and I’m really fortunate to be able to represent my country and I am aware of how important it is to represent my country, not just in a World Cup, but whenever I play for Brazil.”
