As soon as the Brazilian team returned to Paris, Pepe Villengui, who was also covering the III. FIFA World Cup, interviewed the start of Brazil - Poland: Leônidas da Silva.
— Do you want to tell us what impression left your first game in Europe?
— Com muito prazer — replied the diamant noir in Portuguese — Without denying the merits of our loyal opponents, I can say that I never imagined that our defense - generally regarded as the strong point of the team - would be in an unfavorable light for this first game.
— We played my comrade Domingos with a fever of 39°; but I must say frankly that this player is the best of the whole delegation, and it is for the reason that I have just told you that we had a moment of panic.
— Finally, I add that the public was extremely kind to us, and very sporty.
— Do you have confidence for your next match?
— Ah! I can assure you that our team will perform much better than the day before yesterday; when it would only be because Domingos will be completely healed from his flu attack.
