Brazil ‘should be proud’ despite FIFA U-17 World Cup exit insists captain Lucas
Brazil under-17 captain Lucas insists the Seleção should be proud of their performance at the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Alexandre Gallo’s side were knocked-out at the quarter-final stage by Mexico on penalties.
But having been unbeaten in 90 minutes and scoring 16 goals, Lucas believes Brazil can take plenty of positives.
“We talked about this in training, how it is all a learning process. Some days you win, some days you lose," he told fifa.com. "You go through difficult times and sad times, but of course there are also happy times. Now we’ve experienced this we can get on with our careers. It’s just the beginning.”
We should be proud of what we achieved, of our campaign so far,” Lucas continued. “It was a positive experience, and it will help us in the future.”
