Italy playmaker Andrea Pirlo grateful for World Cup reception from Brazilian fans
Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is grateful for the reception he received in Brazil whilst representing Italy and the 2014 World Cup.
The veteran, who won the tournament in 2006, was loudly appreciated by the local fans across the country, though admits he is unsure why they were so welcoming.
“I don’t know,” he said, as reported by Football Italia. “Maybe I was born lucky. Mother Nature has made me such and given me the skills and the talent to succeed, and I am grateful for that.”
