Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJuly 3, 2014

David Luiz's father knew his son was a talent when he was in the womb—such was the power of his kicks.

In this clip from Nike, Ladislau Marinho talks about the pride of wearing Brazil's yellow and green and opens up on his son living, "an unforgettable dream."

Luiz has been a big part of Brazil's run to the quarterfinals of their home World Cup, where they will meet Colombia on Friday.

We also hear from Martin Lotti, who designed the kit Brazil are wearing at the tournament.
