Casillas and Kaka to cheer for Hyundai at 2014 World Cup

Hyundai has revealed two sensational soccer stars will be cheering them on at this year's Fifa World Cup in Brazil. 

Spain and Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas and Brazil and AC Milan midfielder Kaka are the latest brand ambassadors for the manufacturer. 

With the World Cup in Rio just under three months away, Hyundai is stepping up its efforts to promote its brand ahead of one of the biggest sporting competitions on the planet. 

Both players have appeared at three World Cup tournaments and are highly respected in their positions. 

Casillas is known as one of football's greatest modern goalkeepers and was a key part of Spain's World Cup winning side of 2010. 

Kaka was part of the Brazil team that won the tournament in 2002 and has since gone on to feature for the national team in the 2006 and 2010 competitions. He also took the Ballon d'Or title in 2007, acknowledging him as the best player in European football. 

Tak Uk Im, executive president and chief operating officer of Hyundai Motor Company, said the manufacturer is "very excited" to have the legendary footballers on board. 

"Through Casillas and Kaká, we hope to share the passion and excitement of the tournament with every corner of the world, while once again showcasing Hyundai Motor’s commitment to the world’s most popular sport," he added.
