Watch Brazil legend and two-time World Cup-winning defender Cafu show off the Cork City jersey in a stunning TikTok

BRAZIL legend Cafu turned out to be something of a Cork City fan after showing the club’s jersey on TikTok.

The 51-year-old two-time World Cup winner was caught on camera holding the shirt, which had “Cafu 2” written on the back.

The reveal was documented on TikTok, where a video of the presentation was posted by users “deanxcahill” and “csheehann”.

In the video, it is said that a family member of the first, who had a previous connection to the iconic defender, sent him the jersey, setting everything in motion.


He is not the first high profile figure to show his appreciation for an Irish League football team.

Ahead of their FAI Cup final against the Bohemians, St. Patrick’s Athletic received support from Thread and Combinations actor Wendell Pierce: a longtime admirer of the Inchicore club.

He has joined former Republic of Ireland defender Paul McGrath in supporting the Saints.

The comedian’s backing clearly worked, too, as Pat ended up beating Bohs on penalties in front of a record crowd at Aviva Stadium.


Then there is the world of GAA.

Most importantly, former Barcelona talisman and Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldinho was pictured with a Kerry top, gifted by Kingdom Under-20 star Paul Walsh.

Walsh had taken a last-minute impromptu trip to Brazil to meet his idol, even revealing to SunSport that he spent his communion money trying to get a Panini card from him.

This was the way the trip was improvised that his parents were the LAST people to find out he had made the trip.

He said: “I got a message from my mother and he said, ‘You’re not in Brazil, are you?’

“There is a series of funny messages in my family group chat.

“Mum or dad wouldn’t be on social media, so they were probably the last to find out. They were sending pictures of that, and mum was like, ‘Paul is not in Brazil’, then someone sent a text, “everyone in Ireland knows where Paul is, mom, with the program. ‘”

Elsewhere, former WWE Champion and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle backed Mayo to “break the curse” and win the All-Ireland football final.

This particular prediction didn’t end up being “pretty darn true” as Tyrone ended up conquering the Connacht champions to bring Sam Maguire back to Ulster.
