Spain defender Gerard Pique is relishing the chance to experience life away from football while in Brazil at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

The Barcelona star, who played in the FIFA World Cup winners’ 2-1 opening victory over Uruguay on Sunday, was speaking after visiting children at the Football for Hope Project in Rio de Janeiro.

Pique has enjoyed great success in both domestic and international football and has played in a number of important matches across the globe.

However, the 26-year-old was delighted to be able to soak up the atmosphere and culture away from the pressure of the international football stage.

“It was an amazing experience,” Pique said.

“To see how a group of kids are preparing themselves for working life, for their own life, by working as team is enriching.

“They make sacrifices; they try to be better at what they do. For me it’s a great experience to see what Brazil is away from football, to feel the culture.”
