Bayern Munich’s Dante posts a video of a Brazilian family praying after he was picked for the World Cup squad

Dante was pretty pleased after getting picked for Brazil’s World Cup squad.

The Bayern Mnunich defender was chosen in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s 23-man team an Wednesday, and Dante was quick to comment on his selection on social media.

The Bayern centre-half wrote on Twitter:

Very happy to be part of the team that will play the @FIFAWorldCup at home. I would like to thank Scolari and the staff for giving me the chance to represent my country and I will try my best to help the team to bring the sixth championship to Brazil.

The defender then posted an uplifting video on his Instagram account in which a Brazilian family, young and old, (and perhaps his own?) were filmed wearing Selecao shirts and reciting a prayer in a circle.
