Hulk praises squad rival Willian
The unity in the Brazil camp has been highlighted by Hulk when answering questions for the Gillette Brasil Global Tour after he was asked questions about his teammate- and rival for a starting berth at this summer's World Cup- Willian. Hulk's positivity about the Chelsea man displayed a real family spirit within the squad.
"Willian is a great player. I've always followed his career since he left Brazil early- I watched him in the Champions League for Shakhtar and have played against him too. He's got incredible quality and is deservedly playing for Brazil as he is a very good player."
"He's playing well for Chelsea and deserves the best because as well as being a good player, he's a great guy off the pitch too, so i wish him the best of luck."
The pair are vying for a place in Brazil's starting XI alongside Oscar and Neymar, with hulk the apparent frontrunner as it stands.
