2018 FIFA WC: Rivaldo sends a special message to the Brazil team

XtraTime Web Desk: Brazil’s former star midfielder Rivaldo urged the Brazil players to think about 2022 World Cup as the five times World Cup winners got eliminated in the Quarter Finals.

Brazilian defender Fernandinho’s own goal followed by a beautiful strike from Machester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne handed a defeat against Belgium.

Tite has not yet indicated whether or not he would like to stay in charge of the Selecao, although Ronaldo wants the coach to remain in his post.

And in a social media post, Rivaldo said Brazil have to start planning for the future immediately.

“First of all, I would like to congratulate Belgium’s national team for their victory and their qualification,” Rivaldo wrote on Instagram.

“The World Cup is just like that, especially in the quarter-finals – that is when the tournament really begins.



“The World Cup is different from Copa America, qualifiers or friendlies. There is no room for mistakes.

“It’s part of football! Of 32 teams, only one wins and this time it was not Brazil.

“I know very well how the players and all Brazilian fans are feeling, it’s a very sad moment, but life has to go on and for sure they will get over it and they will come back stronger.



“Now it’s time to raise your head and think about 2022 in Qatar.”

Brazil icon Pele has also told the national team to concentrate on the future after their Russia 2018 disappointment.

“Not every journey has the end we desire,” Pele wrote on Twitter.

“But every journey brings experience. Let’s look forward now, Brazil.”
