Tottenham Hotspur star Ben Davies reacts to Cafu’s World Cup message to Wales
Tottenham Hotspur left-back Ben Davies has reacted to World Cup-winner Cafu’s message to the Wales national team ahead of the 2022 edition in Qatar.
Cafu lifted the World Cup in 2002 as captain, and it certainly doesn’t get better as a footballer than that. The right-back is arguably the greatest player in his position of our generation and the clout he carries with him is immense.
And that is why him sending a message to the Wales national team using a few Welsh words was iconic and left Davies and co. surprised. The former AC Milan star said in an advertisement (h/t WalesOnline):
“Cymru, croeso nôl. You last played in the World Cup 64 years ago. Your return has been an inspiration to everyone, including me. Good luck boyos. Iechyd da!”
The former Swansea City defender reacted to the video at a press conference and said:
“I saw the video and it’s class. It’s strange to see someone like Cafu wearing a bucket hat and trying to speak a bit of Welsh but it’s great, and it shows we’re doing all the right things on and off the pitch.”
Joe Rodon is another Spurs player who will be representing Wales on the biggest stage in football. The centre-back has been sent on a season-long loan spell at Stade Rennais, where he is seeing more playing time than he would have under manager Antonio Conte.
Wales have a group where they would fancy that they can at least finish as runners-up. The United States of America and Iran are two teams they would fancy their chances against.
