Hulk happy with Brazil recognition
Brazil forward Hulk is happy with his recognition in the national team, following two goals and a place in the starting eleven during the Seleção’s last two friendlies.
The Zenit St. Petersburg player has proved to be in good form, despite criticism over his inclusion in Brazil’s squad, with goals against South Africa and China.
Hulk has admitted that coach Mano Menezes has gave him confidence by recognising his form and giving him a chance to play.
The 26-year-old said: "When our work is recognised, it is impossible not to be motivated. And I know that my work is recognised and I am very happy.
"The result [against China] was fair and we could have scored more. The determination of the players was very strong and that's what counts."
Hulk has not been included in the Seleção’s squad for the upcoming Supercopa de las Americas clashes with Argentina, as Menezes has opted for an all domestic-based team.
