Chelsea's Oscar targets Club World Cup win
Chelsea's Oscar believes that they are capable of beating Corinthians at the upcoming Club World Cup.
Oscar's Chelsea are set to face Paulinho's Corinthians in the competition held in Japan should they both make it to the final.
The youngster told Fifa.com: "It’s very important, it gives you the chance to say you’re the champions of the world. Barcelona took it very seriously last year and we’ll do the same.
"But it won’t be easy. I know them well and they’re a very strong side, well organised. And they will be desperate to win the World Cup, it’s so important in South America. But we’ll be fully prepared for all our opponents.
Faced with the prospect of facing international teammate Paulinho, Oscar admits they will be no love lost between them if they face each other: "Yeah, we have pulling each other’s leg every time we’ve been in the Seleção! It’s all in good fun though.
"I respect Paulinho as a footballer, he’s a very good player, but if we meet at the Club World Cup, I will be doing everything I can to beat him."
