Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar admits he is anxious ahead of next month’s World Cup
Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar has admitted he is anxious about next month’s World Cup.
The 34 year-old, who is currently on loan at Toronto FC from Queens Park Rangers is, however, excited about the tournament, especially as it is being held on home soil.
I’m very anxious [about the World Cup],” he said, as reported by mlssoccer.com. “It’s getting close to the time to meet up with the team and start on this important journey. The whole country is obviously preoccupied [with protests and strikes] but we hope things get settled before the World Cup.
“Every World Cup is a big opportunity; they all have their own flavour. This one being in Brazil is even more special for me; it’s my country, my family is there and I just have God to thank for the opportunity to play in this World Cup.”
