Cafu: If Brazil don’t win the World Cup it will be a failure

The Brazilian legend, Cafu, believes that anything other than winning the World Cup in Qatar will be considered a defeat for the Selecao.

Tite’s team breezed through World Cup qualifying as they topped the South American group after going unbeaten through their 17 games, winning 14 and drawing three.

The world’s top team and 5 time winners were named by many as favorites for the December World Cup.

Brazil, claiming to be Liverpool players Alisson and Fabinho, as well as two Paris Saint-Germain players, Neymar and Marquinhos, have been drawn in the group with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.

However, the Selecao have not featured in the World Cup finals since 2002, when they won the tournament, and the last four programs saw European teams win.

Cafu – the only one to have played in three consecutive finals, won it in 1994, lost in 1998 and won the title in 2002 – believes it is time for Brazil to host the sixth World Cup.

“Every tournament Brazil is under pressure to win. They are the biggest country in the world with a great history,” Cafu told BBC Sport.

“The pressure to win is always present in every game, not just the World Cup.

“It’s time for us to win. It’s clear if we don’t win the World Cup it will be a failure. We are all looking forward and hoping we can do it.”

Gareth Southgate’s England must negotiate a deal with Iran, the United States and one of Wales, Scotland or Ukraine.

England are on the opposite side of Brazil where they have been drawn against Brazil, which means these teams will not meet before the semi-final stage.

Cafu, a national player who has played 142 games, has suggested that the two-nation conference will be a dream come true for Brazilian fans.

For the people of Brazil it will be considered a dream come true because of the weight history of both countries in football, ”he said.

“This game will carry a lot of emotions and can be good not only for England fans but also for football in general.”
