Today is Thiago Silva’s 38th birthday, and as he approaches that milestone, the Brazilian has been considering the keys to his longevity and the reasons he thinks he still has plenty left in the tank.
In preparation for two friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia, the defender is now in France with the national squad. He will be hoping to captain the Selecao into their opening World Cup group game in exactly nine weeks. This will be his fourth World Cup and he is desperate to win and win the one trophy that has eluded him so far.
Thiago Silva, whose extensive experience will definitely be essential to Tite’s team in Qatar, will not even be among the top ten players to compete at an older World Cup. In fact, he is positively young in comparison to Egypt’s goalie Essam El-Hadary, who participated in Russia at the age of 45.
No effort is spared in the pursuit of fitness and match readiness because competing at the highest levels for club and country until you reach your late 30s is not simple.
The ability to play at this level at this age is very important to him, but he recently acknowledged that it’s not always simple, particularly in the Premier League.
“After training is over, I go home and consider how I might prepare for tomorrow.”
You must always be ready since the intensity is strong from the first minute to the last. Despite the fact that I am 38 years old, I believe I can still contribute to this team.
