Dodo on the World Cup

Roma fullback Dodo weighed in on Italy’s opening World Cup match with England to Sky Italia this morning:

“It was a difficult match against a major nation like England, both teams were worried about the field, which wasn’t in perfect condition. They did played a good game, I’m happy for Italy. The best on the field? Balotelli. Brazil? We were very tense for the first game, the next will be better. I hope that Brazil will win the World Cup.”
