"I have great affection for Barcelona, but for Brazil it would be important to win the Santos. Hincharé for Santos, but honestly, if Barcelona wins, I will be sad," said the former striker Romario and now a federal deputy in Rio where he participated in a meeting with the organizing committee for World Cup Brazil 2014.
