Brazil is urged by Pele to “bring home the trophy.”

Ahead of their World Cup debut on Thursday, Brazil’s national team received a virtual pre-game pep talk from football legend Pele in Sao Paulo, telling them to “bring this trophy home.”



The 82-year-old legend posted a series of images of his previous World Cup triumphs on Instagram as the five-time champions got ready to take the field for their opening match against Serbia, telling Neymar and his teammates: “Today we start writing a new story.”


Pele, the only player to ever win three World Cups, stated, “We will be more than 200 million hearts beating as one, vibrating with each achievement of our ‘Selecao’.”


“We must treat every game with respect and play it like it’s the championship. Yes, playing beautifully is important, but it’s also crucial to give your all on the field “He composed.


“I’m sending you guys these images for inspiration. I’m giving you only good vibes right now. We’ll have a happy ending, I’m certain. God’s blessings on you Bring home this prize.”


Pele, who is widely regarded as the greatest football player ever, has had a number of health issues lately but is still active on social media.
