“I'm delighted to be representing Brazil in the Pan-American Championship, and we got a place in Italy, where the World Cup is held, so we want to participate. It was a well-organized event; the Argentines have a lot to teach us Brazilians. ‘I like it a lot,’ as they say here. I loved participating in the championship, it was great, the diversity of contestants, everything was great.”
