"It has been days of training, we did not succeeded our major objective, we did not end up where we planned to, we feel sorry for all the bad things we lived.
I would like to share a personal thought. Some fans suffered, we suffered even more, some cried, we cried even more, some rejoiced, they are forgiven because they did not know what they were doing, but people who are happy about his people being defeated will never have respect from mines.
Thank you everyone that supported us unconditionally. We were just brothers, sons, relatives, friends, coworkers trying to represent our country in the best way as possible, trying to honour our homeland, our people. I would like to use this moment, now that the World Cup is over, to thank all the committee members, all the civil servants, everyone that helped and shared our joys, sorrows and pains in this once in a lifetime experience.
I would like to thank every friends, brothers, that for me are examples of how to live together in a group, how to help each other, how to really be a family of spirit and soul. I would like everyone that was part of this journey to never ever duck his head while being asked about anything related to the 2014 World Cup. The real champions do not always win but they were more champions than those who lose since they never ceased to fight.
I fucking love you all and I ask you to never stop fighting for remaining champions, may we look for each other, cheer for our successful mates, with no judgement, learn to forgive each other, value professions, may we not think that what some people do is easy, may we remind that when we point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at us.
Let’s take the difficulties that our country is facing as a challenge, in order to improve it, start to act in favor of its evolution, without being selfish, in a way that, if education is missing, let’s fight for more schools and great teachers, if descent wages are lacking, let’s fight against corruption, if there is a need in health, let’s fight for bigger hospitals and better doctors and if anything else is lacking, let’s fight for more love, more life and more peace”.
