Willian Delighted With Brazil Recall
Chelsea winger Willian says he is delighted to have been recalled to the Brazil squad for the Copa América as a replacement for the injured Neymar.
Neymar injured his ankle in a pre-tournament friendly against Qatar which means he cannot play. Willian was a surprise call-up to replace the PSG forward.
“I’m very happy, it’s a unique moment. It’s always very good to be able to serve the Seleção. When I got the message and after the call, I felt the butterflies in my belly again as if it were the first time.
“Defending the Seleção anywhere in the world is always special. In Brazil, with the fans close, we will feel this affection that will be fundamental in the search for the title. Now we have to prepare well and focus on the competition.”
