There’s a picture of the man who will be wearing the number nine shirt for Brazil at this summer’s World Cup in Russia. You’ve probably seen it doing the rounds on social media.

 An adolescent with the frame of a boy, still in the midst of negotiating those awkward teenage years, stands, bucket by his feet and brush in his hands, ready to coat the pavements of his neighbourhood in the famous green and yellow of the seleção brasileira – the Brazilian national side, – five-time world champions and favourites to lift the trophy for a record sixth time, if you believe what you see on the bet365 website.
