Super Fern eyes Brazil mission
Date published: 03 February 2014
MANCHESTER City’s Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho sees his side’s heavyweight clash with Chelsea tonight as the ideal opportunity to catch national boss Luiz Felipe Scolari’s eye.
Fernandinho, signed for £30million from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer, has been one of the key figures in City’s push for four trophies. But Fernandinho also wants a place in the Brazil squad for this summer’s World Cup.
The 28 year old, who has won five caps, hoped his move to England would yield greater recognition and he certainly expects Scolari to be watching the high–profile Barclays Premier League tussle with Chelsea.
Fernandinho said: “Getting to the World Cup is a big dream for me. It’s a big game. You could say it’s like a derby because everyone is talking about it. I am sure the Brazilian manager will be watching because there are a lot of players he needs to see.
“If I have a good performance, there is no doubt it will open the door for me. That’s what I am hoping.”
