England-Brazil: Chelsea star Oscar hopes to beat England in "derby" fixture

Chelsea midfielder Oscar hopes to emerge victorious from Brazil's friendly encounter with England on Wednesday—a match which he describes as a "derby" game.

Oscar, 20, joined Chelsea last summer and quickly became an important first-team player, despite the turmoil that has engulfed the club at various stages of the season.

Heading into the game, to be played just a few miles for his new London home, Oscar hopes that his side can make amends for Olympic disappointment on the hallowed Wembley turf.

He told CBF TV: "I hope we start 2013 well. It is a beautiful stadium and will be a beautiful game, but we'll do everything to win it. 

"It will be different for those of us who play in England. It's a derby, I hope we have a great game, and that I have a great game too."

His views were echoed by Chelsea teammate David Luiz, who added: "It's a special game. I haven't had the opportunity to play against England, who have many quality players and some of them are my team-mates too."
