Before Cafu, There Was Marcos

It is only in 1988 that he was finally signed as a soccer player by Sao Paolo. It is however only the following year that he made his debut and thereafter apuestas de futbol Argentina fans rejoiced.
One Of His Two True Loves
Marcos Cafu has only ever had two true loves in his life. The one of course being soccer and the other being his wife. As far as what we know Regina Feliciano was Cafu’s first true love. The two has been married for over 30 year. Through their marriage Cafu has earned Italian citizenship and fathered three children with his beautiful wife.

However, the de Morais family has also had their share of tragedy. The oldest son of the legendary man – Danilo – followed in his fathers’ footsteps.
