Galatasaray midfielder Felipe Melo has admitted he dreams of representing Brazil in the 2014 World Cup after speaking in-depthly to Globo Esporte.
The Brazilian midfielder appeared in the last World Cup but hasn’t played since after being sent off as Seleção were knocked-out by Holland.
The 30-year-old said of his chances of being selected by Luiz Felipe Scolari: “Why not? It will be hard like everything in life, but God means it is not impossible.
“I have to be well prepared to continue working but I never stop dreaming.
"My idea is to be world champion with Brazil. I won the Confederations Cup, and the feeling was amazing. You can make a child's dream. Selection and holding up the Cup it's much more than I dreamed.”
Melo went on to point out that he has been one of the best Brazilian midfielders in Europe recently.
The Brazilian also admitted he has learnt from the mistakes he made previously, including his sending off for stamping on Arjen Robben.
He added: “Well, I was recently elected the best Brazilian midfielder in Europe.
“I respect his (Scolari's) choice, but I can not stop dreaming. My hope never dies. I am one who believes that God opens the door
“What I have to do is work very seriously, respecting others and companions.
“I will not deny, I can not escape the error of the World Cup. That was a mistake, but it does not happen anymore.
“The errors are for us to learn. Today I am 30 years and the trend is you improve and grow, in the mental aspect as well.”
