Former Barcelona defender Dani Alves has revealed that he holds dearly a dream to play in the FIFA World Cup tournament next year in Qatar as he looks to add another trophy to his already-illustrious trophy cabinet.
Alves is currently the most decorated football player in the history of the sport after winning a whopping 43 titles in his career and the number could increase to 44 if Brazil can win their next two games to emerge as the competition’s winners.
Alves played a crucial role in helping Brazil beat South Korea in their last match at the Olympics in the quarterfinals to set up a meeting with Mexico in the semifinal of the competition. The winner of the semi-final clash between Brazil and Mexico will then have to face either Spain or Japan in the final which will be played at the Yokohama Stadium in Japan.
The 38-year-old Brazilian won most of his career titles at Barcelona after spending almost a decade with the Catalan giants and he is now nearing a gold medal win in Tokyo if he can help Brazil to win the two remaining games that would see them become Champions.
The former Barca star revealed that he may be old by age but that’s just a number and that he wants to keep working hard to remain fit for his country. He also added that he is currently preparing to remain fit so that he can represent Brazil at next year’s World Cup in a bid to add another title to his name.
