Cavallo said: “I’d definitely go to the World Cup, yeah.JAMB Result
“I want to show it’s OK for everyone. It’s not just OK for Josh Cavallo because he’s a footballer and he’s protected, I want it to be OK for that everyday person.
“But it does concern me. If I represent Australia at the World Cup – and I’m pushing for that – it would be an honour but at the same time, the laws clash. I want to do something really good in my career – I’ve always dreamed of playing for my country at the World Cup – but do I want my life to be in danger?”
“It’s difficult and a bit sad. It’s hard to pick which one you want to do.
“But in all my messages there’s a lot of people from those countries that have to escape just so they can live freely and be themselves. I hope this changes in the future because it’s not OK the way it’s going right now. It’s something we can definitely turn around.”
