Man Utd Da Silva twins: Pressure to be Brazilian football success overwhelming

Manchester United's Da Silva twins says the pressure to be a football success in Brazil is overwhelming.

The pair are convinced the pressure is unlike anything else in the game.

"If 10 boys are born here, nine want to be a footballer," says Fabio. "And all 10 dads want their boys to be footballers."

His brother agrees.

"There is crazy pressure on Brazil, always," Rafael also told the Daily Mail. "And with the World Cup coming to our country, it's even more."
