During half-time at the Estádio da Ressacada, Vizeu became emotional as he spoke about the support he received to fulfill his dream of being a footballer.

– I knew I had to play, even with this very sad news. I had to help my teammates, who are also family to me. I was very sad to hear the news from my father, but I know he is resting. I want to dedicate this goal to him and ask for a lot of prayers for me and my family. Let this comfort our hearts. I will continue to fight and shine in the fields of the world, God willing, giving it much joy, now looking down on me.
