David Luiz discusses Brazil’s opening two matches and the different pressure they face
Brazil defender David Luiz admits the challenge of winning the World Cup is much greater than the Confederations Cup but feels he and his team mates can achieve it.
The Paris Saint-Germain defender addressed the media this afternoon and discussed the opening two matches as well.
Globo Esporte quoted the 27-year-old, he said: “I wanted great games, shows, two great victories, Brazil flying.
“But we would not have the opportunity to see the real value of a World Cup or what we will face going forward.
“Sometimes you win only 3-0 in the first round, lost by 1-0 in the second round and leave home.
“It was good (the Mexico and Croatia games) because we know that suffering in 80 minutes is to suddenly gain 10.”
Luiz went on to discuss how everybody wants to defeat the hosts’ but the former Chelsea ace accepts the new challenge with open arms.
“It is very difficult, people increasingly want to beat Brazil,” the PSG defender added.
“In the Confederations Cup, things flowed better because our will to win was much larger, the others had no such ambition.
“Today, they also have the right to dream, to work, to seek, we must learn to face it.”
