The coaching staff allowed the father to leave the pitch and go up to the reserved area to calm his little son down.
The first training session of the Brazilian team in Qatar attracted the attention of journalists from all over the world. The international press didn’t want to miss any detail of the performance of this South American team, which is considered one of the favorites to win the World Cup.
But nothing drew more attention than an incident starring midfielder Lucas Paquetá.
When the young father entered the field, his oldest son, Benício, 2 years old, who was in the stands with his mother and little brother, started to cry and insist that he wanted his daddy.
Paquetá was allowed by the coaching staff to leave the pitch and go up to the reserved area to talk to his family and calm his little son down. When the midfielder reached them, he hugged his wife and children, took the eldest on his lap, and talked to him a little bit, and soon the boy stopped crying.
