Diego Alves eager to stay part of Dunga's squad
Valencia goalkeeper has revealed his pride at breaking into the Brazil squad and his determination to remain part of Dunga's plans.
The former Atletico Mineiro man earned a call-up for the friendlies with Turkey and Austria in November 2014, keeping a clean sheet as Brazil romped to a 4-0 victory in Istanbul.
And the 29-year-old is eager to become a permanent fixture with the Seleção after being included again for the forthcoming friendlies with France in Paris on March 26 and Chile in London on March 29. He told GOAL: "Being called up by Brazil is always something to be proud of. I was very happy to be included for the last friendlies. I trained very hard to earn trust the coaching staff. I tried to just enjoy this opportunity. Now I have to maintain my club form to remind them I should be included. We have a very good generation of goalkeepers, so there is huge competition."
