TAHITI FA PRESIDENT
After discussions with the coach and the technical staff, we decided to invite children from a favela to share a few special moments with our players. Above all, we wanted to show that football is not only a sport, but that there is also a social aspect to our game. That's why we decided to invite children from the favela, so they could discover the true meaning of football. We also invited them to the match in the Maracana, so they could experience this wonderful stadium too.

"The humidity is something we have to deal with, as it really is difficult. I don't know what performance we can put in against Brazil. The humidity and heat is difficult, so we have to figure out how to deal with it."
