"I'm in  through personal sponsorship, I love football, I have going for World Cup since 2002 when I was 20 years old in Japan.

"The debates, I'm surprised. I save for it. In the next four years, I will be in Qatar and I have started saving for it," she said.

"It's not a  the World Cup as members of the Sports and Culture committee, as well as Bunge FC. It's not a bad thing, but they must prepare a report when they come back and table it in Parliament. That's the standard procedure," he stated.
