Goalkeeper Julio Cesar feels he has the trust of his teammates
Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar says that people are warming to Luiz Felipe Scolari's decision to call up the 34 year-old for the World Cup in the wake of much criticism before the tournament started.
The stopper, who is loan at MLS club FC Toronto from English Premier League outfit Q.P.R., told yesterday's media gathering: "During my first press conference here I made it quite clear that I had prepared a lot to be here aside from the fact that a lot of people criticised me for the choice that I made to play in a league that, in theory, is a little weaker."
"But I think what's more important is people were criticising my work, and I managed to get the trust of the technical commission and my teammates, and I'm working well."
"Trust me, that's important for a goalkeeper."
The former Champions League winner will assume his position between the sticks for Brazil's crucial third Group A game on Monday against Cameroon in Braslia.
