If God gave me the opportunity to choose a country to be born in, it would be BRAZIL. Nothing in my life was given or easy I always had to chase my dreams and my goals. Never wishing evil on anyone but helping those in need. Today has become one of the hardest moments in my career... and again in a world cup. I have an injury yes, it's boring, and it's going to hurt but I'm sure I'll have the chance to come back because I will do my best to help my country, my teammates and myself. Long time to wait for the enemy to knock me down like this? N E V E R ! I am a CHILD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE GOD and my FAITH is endless.
