In 2010, you quarreled on the field with Santos’s coach after he stopped you taking a penalty. Did that change you?

It was one of the worst moments of my life because I knew I was wrong. After the match I apologized to the coach. But what shook me most was arriving home and finding my mum crying. She said she watched it on TV and that wasn’t the son she had raised. I cried all night, I didn’t sleep. It made me grow into a man. I think that was my worst moment in football because it involved the whole family. My dad was ill then, in bed, and my mum said he’d always fought for me.

Sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

According to the timeline, the petition started over a year ago and i’m beyond saddened that we haven’t hit 5000 signatures yet.

I want to highlight

Artificial turf has been blamed for increased injuries on sporting fields, including more sprained ankles, concussions, turf burns, and an injury known as "turf toe." Overheating is also a health concern for athletes since temperatures can be hotter on artificial surfaces than on natural grass. Finally, turf is widely known to alter the speed and quality of play on the field.

Here’s a depiction of what happens

On top of the health hazards, it alters the game. Players would be more wary about slides and tackles. You won’t see any dolphin RVP headers here. No slidey celebrations.

Again, please sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS
