Football Match in Rio de Janeiro!

Football Match in Rio de Janeiro!

star-5
I'm in love with football. I went to the stadium for the first time at the age of 5 and never stopped being present. I celebrated championships, cried for losses and victories, watched some of the greatest players in Brazil and in the world. I made great friends who cheer for my team and also for the opposing team, after all, sport is Peace. At Maracanã I watched strangers embrace as relatives celebrating a goal at the last minute and witnessed parents celebrating the first championship along with their young son. I invite you to see all this with me, with security and structure. "Let's go" ?
