Italy Pope Message Brazil WCup Soccer

In this image from video, Pope Francis records a video message to camera, Thursday June 12, 2014, giving a message for the soccer World Cup: Let football be a showcase for teamwork and solidarity, not an exhibition of racism and greed, Pope Francis says “To play in a team means to think, first of all, about the goodness of the group and not about oneself.” The Argentine-born, football-loving pope recorded the video message that will be broadcast on Brazilian television ahead of Thursday’s opening soccer match between Brazil and Croatia.
