Thiago Silva imagines ‘lifting the cup’ in Brazil
The Seleção captain admits that he pictures winning the World Cup this summer.
SporTV.com reports that the PSG defender has the discipline to free himself of that ‘madness’ and prioritise the next game above visions of glory.
Silva said: "Sometimes I find myself thinking of lifting the cup, without even thinking about the first game. This is the madness of it all. First you have to think [about] the first game.
"But it's so crazy to visualise the final at the Maracanã, and not see the first game, which I think is the most important of all."
