Something almost slipped under the radar!
It would appear that our Brazilian midfielder, Oscar, was excused form the Brazilian World Cup squad recently, to attend a life-changing event.
The 22 year-old Brazilian was on hand to witness the birth of his first child, a girl named Julia.
Oscar has now returned to the Brazilian training camp and is expected to resume his international career in the friendly international against Serbia.
Speaking about becoming a dad, ahead of the World Cup, Oscar has remarked,
"I`m very glad she has come at this time."
"Now to play my first World Cup will be so exciting."
I`m sure you`ll all join me in offering Oscar our congratulations on achieving another milestone in life.
