PSG's Lucas Moura still harbours World Cup selection
PSG attacking midfielder Lucas Moura has kept optimistic about making Brazil's squad for the upcoming World Cup in his homeland despite appearing to be out of favour with head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari as it stands.
Speaking with O Globo yesterday, 21 year-old Lucas said: "I trust my football and my talent. I have a clear conscience because I am working hard. I am thinking positively."
"Many things can still happen. In my opinion, Scolari still doesn't have the 23 players in his head. I am going to do my best to be on the final list."
Perhaps not considered a regular starter for PSG at the moment, Lucas understands that a team with as many options as the French do will rotate their players without hesitation. It is a similar situation with the national team: "Barzil has so many options in attack."
"When Felipao was testing players last year, I wasn't playing much at the time due to the strong competition at PSG. For that reason I lost my spot in the national team but I'm working as hard as I can to get back into the side."
