World Cup winner Cafu is joined by Yohan Blake and Warren Weir at the adidas Dugout

Cafu talked football and World Cup predictions with the Jamaican sprinting duo as part of a new initiative set up by adidas designed for football fans from around the world to get involved in the action, by submitting questions for guests on adidas social platforms. The unique platform includes a series of exclusive and interactive shows throughout the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, and has already featured other big names including Patrick Vieira and Fernando Hierro.

Speaking on the live show in Rio after Brazil's victory over Croatia, Cafu said, "The atmosphere in the stadium was fantastic. The fans were behind the team from the beginning, there was a big vibration, a lot of passion and love. Even when Brazil was down 1-0 to Croatia the fans were behind the team and that's what we want to see throughout the World Cup. What was big for Brazil was Oscar's performance. He played very well, got the third goal and showed how to play football."

The innovative shows will bring an audience of millions of football fans closer than ever before to adidas star footballers and legends, providing debate, views and reactions to all the action in Brazil on and off the field.

The next show, which airs live on 27th June at 1100 (BRT) on YouTube and adidas social channels, will feature Brazilian duo Kaká and Lucas Moura. To watch go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj-gImgZ39Q.
