The friendly match between Germany and Brazil in Stuttgart will be full of emotions on Wednesday, said striker Cacau, Brazilian German by birth but by adoption, in an interview in Kicker magazine on Monday.
“It will be a very special moment, very moving,” says Jeronimo Barreto Claudemir said Cacau, who came from Palmeiras in 1999 to play in Germany on Wednesday for the country he represents the 17th time since receiving his new passport in 2009.
His selection against Brazil allows him to play against the Seleçao who dream like all Brazilian children. “I followed the World Cup 1994 in full. With Romario, Jorginho, Dunga. This is the generation that made me dream,” recalled the native of Santo Andre in the state of Sao Paulo.
Joachim Löw was chosen for the first time since 2010, years that saw him return to South Africa with the third world but which was then marked injury.
As for his prognosis against Brazil: “Very hard to say. I hope they win. But I am especially happy when I trod the turf,” said Cacau and will evolve in the stadium where he shines in Stuttgart since 2003 (as 2007).
The striker has started the season well in 2011-12 registering the first goal in a victory over Schalke 04 (3-0) Saturday, his 71st in the colors of Stuttgart.
