The Brazilian fans promise to thrill football fans in the match against South Korea, this Monday (5), at 4 pm (Brasília time), for the round of 16 of the world Cup🇧🇷 With an eye on the King’s health and also as a form of homage, an organization will shout the idol’s name.
The Green Yellow Movement, the biggest organized supporters of the selection, will shout “Pelé” repeatedly in the 10 minutes of the confrontation to revere the greatest soccer athlete of all time. Pelé is hospitalized in São Paulo to treat a respiratory infection. The former athlete also suffers from colon cancer.
The homage of the Brazilian fans must take place in all Brazilian games from now on, following the example of what Argentine fans do, who honor the idol Diego Armando Maradona, who died in November 2020. Also at 10 minutes, in clear reference to the number from the shirt, the brothers shout “Diego”.
In addition to shouting Pelé’s name, Brazilians will wear the flags of the King of Football during the tribute, the same ones seen in the last game of the first phase, when Brazil lost to Cameroon by 1-0.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known worldwide as Pelé, is 82 years old and has been diagnosed with a respiratory infection, according to the latest medical bulletin released by Albert Einstein Hospital on Saturday (3).
According to the medical team, Pelé is being treated with antibiotics. He is hospitalized in a common room and his state of health is stable.
The hospital’s press office confirmed that the King of Football was admitted this Tuesday (29) for a reassessment of the chemotherapy treatment of the colon tumor identified in September 2021.
