World Cup 2014 – Group D: Doing It for the Kids and Rock n’ Roll

22 Jun

BqV_XotIUAAmXYkA group of Brazilian children were invited to meet with the Italian national team on June 17. Based on the video, it’s unclear who was more excited for the visit, the kids or the players. Which I love! But one thing is for sure, Balotelli was the star attraction.


Someone has stars in their eyes for Bonucci. And the little girl too.

“Nice hair, bro”

A selfie, of course. I mean, who wouldn’t??

An even better selfie!

Footage of the visit starts around 1:10.

The Azzurri were also visited by Italian pop band Negramaro. The band wrote a song specifically for the team called “Un Amore Così Grande” or “A Love So Great”. A big concert is planned in Brazil for June 23, the eve of the Italy vs Uruguay match, to kick off their tour of the same name.

All proceeds from the song will be fully allocated to AISLA (Italian Association Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and AISM (Italian Multiple Sclerosis Association) for funding scientific research. Fantastic!

      All he wants is love. I believe you said that earlier. I’m cautiously with him, but do like how he has conducted himself this tournament.
