Anxious for the debut of the Brazilian team in the World Cup, the Vasconcelos family decided to put their artistic gifts, which they swear didn’t exist, to the test and create their own themed street in the Ana Maria do Couto neighborhood. Feeling like cheering in a special way, from the gigantic flag to the football field, they gave new colors to the street.

Next Wednesday (24th), the Brazilian team plays its first game and, with that in mind, the family thought they would need to speed up the drawing and painting process. Yesterday (21), residents of Dallas Park also talked about how they painted the front of their house and gathered about ten people to make the art.

With paint, dye and a lot of desire to cheer, the Ana Maria do Couto group started creating symbols on Friday and only finished at the end of Sunday. As the drawings emerged, they say they lost the idea of ​​the size of each image.

A root fan, Edmarcio Santos Vasconcelos, 52, says he always waited for the World Cup and passed on his love for football to his children. “I think people should be more excited for the Cup because it is an event that happens only every four years. It’s nice for us Brazilians to give prestige to our country in the competition”, he says.

Even knowing they weren’t going to lose any games, he explains that the idea of ​​trying to make the street win the colors of the Selection came from his eldest son, Edmarcio Jr. “It was a very good experience because my son had the idea and everyone was excited to help paint”.

Joining the team of new artists for the cup, Thiago, 17, says he was one of the first to get into his brother’s idea. “We called a neighbor and my sister-in-law too, and then we started painting. No one had painted it or knew how to do it, but it worked.”

Having no experience or practice in drawing, Thiago says that the flag, the shield of the CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) emerged based on the desire to cheer. “We took a measuring tape, paint and dye to paint. Then we made the drawings little by little until it worked”.

Attentive to all the details, the flag was complete and not even a table they had at home ran away from the colors. Some phrases like “Rumo ao Hexa” and homage to the player Neymar were also included in the package.

Now, with the first ever painting done, they comment that the 2022 World Cup has already become special. Believing that the new title comes, the family will cheer even more.
