Chelsea’s Brazilian forward Willian Borges da Silva lost his mother after a battle with cancer. The 28-year-old who scored for his country’s national side against Venezuela on Tuesday night wrote a tribute to his mother saying:
“I miss you so much. This is true. But I still accept this because we are going to live together for all eternity.
“I continue here on earth, faithful to the Lord’s teachings, so that I can be like you and also have the Kingdom of Heaven.”
