We missed out on the joy we are feeling now in France 98, but we are living it now and it is such a pleasure for every Brazilian.
But it would never have happened without this group of Brazil players.
I will celebrate, but I know new goals and objectives will come and I am ready to take them.
I worked for two and a half years trying to recover from that injury and today God reserved this for me and the Brazilian team. I am very happy.
If I was asked about my wildest dreams, I would never have considered this.
I was asked about setting my sights on a sixth World Cup with Brazil - but now I want to enjoy the fifth.
To hold the World Cup in my hands is one of the most incredible moments of my life.
I decided to join Barcelona because it's a sunny place. They are building for the future and want to win titles, and they have the conditions to do it. And I wanted to go there because it is an honour to play in the shirt of a team who have had great players like Romario, Hristo Stoichkov and others.
I never thought about draw or lose before each game. I always think about winning the match, whatever the color of my shirt. I play by instinct, and my instinct is to goal. I will not do any other things that not related to it.
I love to score goals after passing all the defenders as well as the keeper. This is not my speciality, but my habit.
