13/07/2014 - 13:02

Dear players and Technical Commission,

You - and Brazilian football - are greater than any passing result. What will remain stronger in the hearts of our people are the moments of joy you have given us in this World Cup and the ones you will certainly ensure us in future World Cups. Especially because all of us, without exception, will be able to use the lessons learned today to make our football even better - inside and outside the stadiums. This is how we further expand the successful history of our Seleção.

We, Brazilians, may not have won the trophy, but we have hosted the Cup of Cups. And without you, that would have never been possible. Please accept our affection and most sincere thanks.

Dilma Rousseff
