THE Cup has already begun and the election in Brazil is not over yet. Tite still shares the ball with Jair Bolsonaro🇧🇷 Followers on both sides are ready, the fans in front of the TV and all the movements of the Brazilian team, as seen in the first victory in the Qatarand the president’s voters still quartered in front of the barracks spread across the country.
Not even Brazil’s first victory, Richarlison’s goals and Neymar’s injury were able to demobilize these Brazilians who only have eyes for the results of the elections and their distrust of the polls, each day in smaller numbers and it is not known exactly in exchange for what . It smells like an old subject, but it exists and is being portrayed amid the participation of the selection in another edition of the Cup and with its race after the sixth world title. The fact is that the reaction came in the use of the national shirt, kidnapped, but now rescued by football. She belongs to everyone. It cannot be just one.
It turns out that not even the World Cup party is being able to put an end to the political situation in the country, following yet another government and the legitimacy of the elections, the same ones that put candidates in power and remove them, as happened four years ago with Bolsonaro .
Football takes the lead in conversations in bars, decorated, and in the use of green and yellow. It has timidly brought together ‘destroyed’ families and friendships broken by politics. It shouldn’t have been like this. But was. Football has a lot to offer right now. In addition to the first step taken by Brazil, there are games and results to celebrate. There are characters in Qatar.
Mbappe is one of them. How the Frenchman plays, who takes his team to the round of 16 with two more goals against Denmark. He has already left legends like Platini and Zidane behind in the team’s artillery. Mbappé has seven goals in World Cups in his 23 years of age, and already as the 2018 world champion. There is much more to the World Cup.
Continues after advertising
It so happens that, at the meetings of friends, after the goals discussed, the opinions of the strongest teams and that they have a chance of winning the Cup in Qatar, Brazil and Neymar’s clinical condition, the theme returns to the transition of government, for the barracks, for the January 1st inauguration and even for the health situation of president-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
It’s okay that the Brazilian team has only played one game so far and the World Cup will gradually heat up, especially when it enters the knockout stages, when losing means packing your bags and taking the path back. But it was time for these people to let go and accept the facts.
Football will correct the misdeed left by the political split. Or at least help with that. May everyone follow their ideas, but no longer indifferent to Brazil and the national team. You have to stop, breathe and move on, people!
