The son of Brazil’s legendary World Cup-winning captain Cafu Cafu has died due to a suspected heart attack after playing football in his hometown Sao Paulo, international media reported.
According to reports from Brazilian media, Cafu’s eldest son, 30-year-old Danilo Feliciano de Moraes, complained that he was feeling unwell while playing football in his hometown on Wednesday. He was taken to the Albert Einstein hospital where he later died.
Several leading football clubs took to Twitter to pay their respects to Cafu’s son and offer their condolences to the family.
Cafu is considered one of football’s best-ever right-backs. He is the only man to have played in three World Cup finals, winning two of them. He captained Brazil to their 2002 triumph, but lost in 1998 to France. He has played a record 142 times for Brazil.
