Barack Obama’s motivational influence now extends to soccer matches.
Kaka, the player of the Confederations Cup reveals that the Seleccao took the two goal deficit to the locker room and rallied using Obama’s now famous campaign slogan. “Yes, we can!” It worked as they fought back and won scoring two goals by Luis Fabiano and the match winner by Lucio in the second half.
I wonder if Obama feels so happy with the USA at the receiving end of his slogan!
Julio Cesar also praised Dunga saying that he had been critical of him in the past but this was “Dunga’s moment.” He also mentioned that Brazil cannot afford to write of their opponents as the US showed in the finals.
The report also mentions that Kaka did not fly back to Brazil but left for Madrid where he will be presented on Tuesday.
