Thiago Silva, a defender for Chelsea, has joined Brazil on the World Cup stage while still playing for the Blues.
Thiago Silva, a defender for Chelsea, changed the course of history on Thursday night as he became the first player in Brazil’s history to captain the team in three different World Cups.
Silva, who is 38 years old and still competing at the highest level, is certain that he can help the team win another championship.
With only three of the nine advanced call-ups being Neymar Jr., Vinicius Jr., and Raphinha, the Selecao is one of the competition’s top picks and has some astounding forward line talent.
Despite having a wealth of talent at their disposal, the backline may very well be what spectators anticipate for these knockout encounters.
That suggests a small reliance on Silva and the rest of the team, who promised before the opening match against Serbia that he is acting in his best interests:
“I’m using my best Thiago Silva incarnation. I’m in the midst of one of my career’s most mind-blowing phases at age 38.
“I’m confident that the person I see now is significantly improved, ready for this moment, and has everyone’s trust. I thank the coach for appointing me commander; it’s an unbelievable moment. I’ve always been ready for anything.
While many athletes set aside their club commitments when competing at the international level, Silva has brought his Chelsea allegiance to the World Cup. This was discovered in a post on Instagram. where the middle back showed off his shin pads before to the game.
The design prominently included the Blues and Brazil as well as tributes to both of his children and his better half, demonstrating his deep commitment to standing up for everything on the international arena.
