Former Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on Wednesday for a two-day visit as a FIFA ambassador for the ongoing Bangabandhu Gold Cup International Football Tournament.

He along with a FIFA official is expected to land at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka by Emirates Airways at 4:55 pm.

During his two-day visit, the 40-year-old superstar, as a FIFA ambassador, will meet the BFF officials, hold a session with women players at BFF artificial turf and young booters at the BFF academy at capital’s Beraide and meet the local press on Thursday afternoon.

The former Inter Milan goalkeeper will pay tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing wreaths at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi in the capital.

Later, he will watch the second semifinal match, between Bangladesh and Burundi, of the Bangabandhu Gold Cup before leaving Dhaka at night.

Júlio César won 87 international cups for Brazil between 2004 and 2014. He was selected for the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, and two Copa América tournaments. His performance in the 2014 FIFA World Cup match against Germany set the record for most goals conceded in a single match for Brazil. He was also named UEFA Club Goalkeeper of the Year after the 2009–10 season and won the Golden Glove award at the 2013 Confederations Cup.
