Real Madrid midfielder Rodrygo Goes: I've fulfilled my dreams

Real Madrid midfielder Rodrygo Goes says he's fulfilling a promise made to his father by playing in the World Cup for Brazil.

Rodrygo revealed his career targets set when writing for the Players' Tribune.

He said, "My dad always said that words have power. I had all these dreams as a kid - brother, I loved to dream - so I kept telling myself the same things.

"I'm going to play for Brazil. I was running around with a fake Selecão shirt and the Neymar mohawk.

"I'm going to play for Real Madrid. When I was 10, my birthday party theme was 'Rodrygo Real Madrid.'

"I'm going to win the Champions League. The peak of club football.

"I'm going to play in the World Cup. The peak of football, period."
