Holy Child Football Player

Niño Futbolista

The national soccer team thanks the Holy Child Football player with all their hearts because he has heard their prayers and they won a ticket to the world championship. They were at the point of watching it on tv at home but at the end they got through by the skin of their teeth. Now they are very happy to go there.

With this humble exvoto I ask the Holy Child Football player so that everything would go well for our national team at the world championship in Russia. So that we wouldn’t end up with penalties, and Ochoa would take everything, and Chicharito wouldn’t fail us, and they wouldn’t penalize us—like in case with Robben when there was no foul—and so we would stay at least till the fifth game to bring some joy to our very devastated Mexico.
