While Vini Jr. he shines in the World Cup and is loved by all sides, he was a kitten who had the opportunity to be close to the star of the Brazilian national team. During a press conference, held last Wednesday (7/12), the animal was on the table as a kind of guardian for the attacker. When removed from the bench, the feline remained at the scene, observing everything that happened there.
As a result, the kitten became the darling of Brazil’s coaching staff and was given the name “Hexa”, the desire of Brazilian players and fans. At the end of the press conference, the anima was still in the CT and was spotted by Ricardo Magatti, a reporter for Estadão. The press professional revealed that the animal is now protected by the Selection.

The Quest for Hexa
After thrashing South Korea by 4 x 1, the Brazilian team is preparing to face Croatia, for the quarterfinals, this Friday (9/12), at 12h. For the match, Tite will certainly have two absences: Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles, who injured their knee and have already left Qatar.
Another who should also be left out of the match is Alex Sandro, who is recovering from a hip injury. Despite having already gone to the field, the left-back will still be evaluated by the medical department and may come as a surprise among the Brazilian team’s subscribers.
If you don’t have the starting side, Tite should keep the same team that thrashed South Korea in the round of 16: Alisson; Éder Militão, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Danilo; Casemiro, Lucas Paquetá and Neymar; Vini Jr, Richarlison and Raphinha. If Alex Sandro can go to the match, the commander will have at his disposal the same team that debuted at the World Cup in Qatar.
