“Every kid dreams of playing for their country at a World Cup. It’s a unique opportunity and they have to enjoy it, but they also have to be focused and do a good job because not everyone gets to be a world champion,” commented Brazil’s goalkeeping great and FIFA Legend Júlio César, one of the football icons that the world first became aware of at the FIFA U-17 World Cup along with Ronaldinho, Neymar, Toni Kroos, Celestine Babayaro and Cesc Fàbregas, among many others.
“I can only encourage Brazilian and international fans to secure their tickets and support a new generation of football stars.”
Besides the Estádio Bezerrão in Brasília, Goiânia’s Estádio da Serrinha and Estádio Olímpico as well as Vitória’s (Cariacica) Estádio Kléber Andrade will stage the youth showpiece.
