“Brazilians are football-mad and their obsession with football will reach fever pitch over the next few weeks …,” said Dr. Rudi Zimmer of the Bible Society of Brazil, reports the United Bible Societies. “We want the Bible to have a prominent presence amid all the excitement. It’s an unprecedented opportunity for churches and Christians here to share God’s Word with local and foreign fans, and we want to equip and encourage them to do that.”

He added, “We want as many people as possible to get the chance to hear about God’s love for them, so please pray for this outreach at the World Cup,” Zimmer saidl. “Pray for God’s blessing and guidance for the volunteers and pray that the football fans will have open hearts to hear and welcome the message of God’s Word.”

The  22-year-old  became the first Premier League player to score at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and took just one game to get off the mark for the host nation.

The Chelsea midfielder’s 91st-minute outside-of-the-foot curler past Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa sealed the 3-1 win after Neymar scored twice, getting Brazil off to a perfect start.

Oscar’s Chelsea team-mate David Luiz went close earlier in the World Cup opener – as did Hull City’s Nikica Jelavic for Croatia – but it was Oscar who got the ball rolling for the Premier League in Brazil.

“Thank you God for everything and the Brazilian fans for all the support! This goal was for my wife Ludy and my daughter Júlia!”
