Liverpool's Lucas Leiva hopes to reclaim Seleção place
Lucas Leiva has admitted that he is running out of time to impress Luiz Felipe Scolari and make the Seleção squad for Brazil 2014.
The Brazilian has had a torrid time with injuries and is now back on the road to recovery with the Reds, hoping to reclaim his place in the Seleção,
"I keep thinking about it, obviously. I have not had any opportunity to impress Scolari, as I played in the Seleção for Dunga and Mano Menezes," Lucas told UOL.
"What I can add is that I've been doing here in Liverpool, providing security for the attackers so they can play.
"This was my job with the Seleção and I did it well when I worked mainly with Mano, with whom I had a longer period with.
"Obviously, with every game that passes, every call that passes, the chances are smaller, because sadly we're closing in on the World Cup, so the group will be set.
"But I keep thinking about it and I hope I can get an opportunity and gain my place with the Seleção, something that I had won with Mano.
"Unfortunately for me, I got injured during the change of coaches. But I've shown that I'm recovered, I'm working at a good level. Now is a good season to keep going, do well, get attention and maybe get a chance."
