“I like your eyes. I like your nose. I like your mouth, your ears, your hands, your toes.”


Translated to English:

Hi David Luiz,

My name is Ana Luz.

I saw all of the Brazil games in the World Cup and I liked it a lot watching you play.

I think that you don't need to be sad because you played well and did the best you could. You were a great captain.

Life is like this, sometimes people lose and sometimes people win but people only need to be happy.

David Luiz, you are my champion.
