Bangalore: Lionel Messi, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney may just get lucky enough to shake the hands of six young champions from Bangalore. The youngsters have been working with the NGO Dream a Dream in the city, and have been training hard after being selected to represent India in the Football for Hope festival in Brazil.
Bhaskar took a break from practising in a field in Jayanagar in south Bangalore to tell NDTV, "I'm very happy and I'm feeling very lucky to go there. My favourite player is Neymar. I'd like to take an autograph from him. I'd like to shake a hand with him. When I feel that I'm going to Brazil, in my stomach there's butterfly flying there."
Rajeshwari is one of the three girls who are part of the squad.,"My favourite player is Rooney. I am seeing in TV only. First time, I will meet him directly. I'm very happy and excited," she said.
