Botafogo's Jefferson seeks World Cup callJefferson has made over 200 appearances for Botafogo
Botafogo goalkeeper Jefferson is hoping that his Copa Libertadores clean sheet last week against Deportivo Quito can serve as a reminder to Luiz Felipe Scolari that he is ready and available for Brazilian duty.
Jefferson told the media that the crowd at the game were fantastic: "I congratulate everyone. When we entered the Maracana we all shivered. The crowd was wonderful."
The shot stopper, 31, has targeted a World Cup spot and knows that continental performances will aid his cause no end, as Botafogo returned to South America's leading club championship after a 17 year hiatus.
With nine caps to his name already, Jefferson - who was part of the Brazil squad to triumph at the 2013 Confederations Cup- will be hoping that Felipao calls on him for the ultimate test- a World Cup on home soil.
