The Argentine pope said that sport was not only a form of entertainment but, above all, a means to promote the good and build a more just, fraternal and peaceful society.

“My hope is that, besides being a sporting feast, the World Cup can become a feast of solidarity among peoples,” he said in the message.

“Sport is a school of peace. It teaches us to build peace.”

The pope is an honorary member of the club nicknamed the Saints of Boedo for the barrio where they were founded by a group of young men that included a priest in 1908.

Host country, Brazil will take to the field against Croatia in the opening match of the football showpiece.
