Willian aiming to give joy back to the Brazil fans with the Maracanazo fresh in the memoryWillian wants to give joy back to the Brazil fans
The Maracanazo is a term that haunts many Brazilians but Willian is keen to help Brazil fans forget about the match by winning the 2014 World Cup.
The last time Brazil hosted a World Cup was in 1950 but they failed to win the tournament and instead lost disastrously in the final to Uruguay.
This result is still considered as one of the biggest upsets in football history and the Chelsea midfielder wants to give the joy back to the fans.
The 25-year-old told The Times of India about how Brazil want to win the tournament in style, Goal.com quoted Willian.
He said: "(The Maracanazo) is something every fan in has not forgotten yet, and neither have the Brazil media.
"We want to do it differently. We want to give Brazilians the joy of the championship.”
Willian went on to discuss how important the fans were in the Confederations Cup last summer, despite the Chelsea ace not being selected.
He hopes they can be the 12th player again, Willian added: "When we won the Confederations Cup last summer, we felt the whole country was behind us and that helps a lot. The support of the fans means they are our 12th player."
