Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho insists that he hasn't given up hope of making Brazil's squad for the upcoming World Cup, as the domestic season draws to a chaotic end.
The diminutive playmaker, 21, told Placar that he still believes the call from Luiz Felipe Scolari could happen: "The Brazilian national team will always be one of my objectives, and I haven't given up on the World Cup yet."
"I know our manager keeps an eye on everything that is going on, and I am doing my best to deserve a chance."
"Let's see what happens until the squad is called up. I still have the dream of playing the World Cup in Brazil."
Coutinho has impressed this season at Anfield, playing a starring role in their quest to become champions for the first time in over two decades. He has played once for Brazil before, back in a 2010 friendly with Iran.
