The Brazilian club wants to win!

Flamengo is presented as the great rival of Real Madrid in the Club World Cup that begins this Wednesday. The two teams can only meet in the final and the Brazilian entity acknowledges that they are “obsessed” with the tournament and with the possibility of facing Madrid .


“The players are very focused on this World Cup. It is the greatest obsession of a football team . I think that all the preparation that Flamengo is doing is to get to this competition in the best possible way. We know it’s going to be very hard. We will have to face a local club, which will play with a very lively press and fans. Or we will play against another rival, which is also a great team and has great players. They made it difficult for us last time”, declared Rodolfo Landim, president of Flamengo, to Globoesporte. The Rio de Janeiro team faces the tournament with extra motivation, since CONMEBOL will reward them with a bonus of five million euros (4.6 million euros) if they win.


The game is in the semi-finals

The rival of the Brazilian team in the semifinals will come out of the duel between Wydad Casablanca and Al Hilal from Saudi Arabia, but in the minds of all Brazilian fans and players and members of the club is the possible final against Real Madrid. “We must go step by step. A very tough task awaits us and prepares for the final, whoever it is. Everyone says that it’s going to be Real Madrid , but I think you also have to respect those who have gone there, because they didn’t come for nothing. They will also have to face difficult rivals,” Landim said.
