Tottenham's Sandro: It's all down to me to get back into the Seleção
Tottenham midfielder Sandro says it is all down to him to make the most of his time when he returns from inkury in order to impress the Seleção coach.
Luis Felipe Scolari is currently compiling his squad options for Brazil 2014, and has admitted that Sandro is in his thoughts.
"That really pleased me,” said Sandro to FIFA.com. “A lot of people said to me: ‘Felipão likes you. You’re the type of player he values,’ but it’s another thing completely to hear the coach say your name.
"It makes me want to do all I can to get back in the Tottenham side, play well and earn myself that chance.
"Playing alongside Paulinho could be good for me but we’ll just have to wait and see,” Sandro added.
"To be honest, right now it’s all down to me. If can get back to the kind of form I was in when I got injured, then I’ll get the call, which I think I would have got before.
"I’ve lost time but now I’ve got a year in which to show I’m good enough for a place at the World Cup.
"There is pressure on me but it’s a nice type of pressure. After everything I’ve been through, I’m happy to be where I am right now, and all I want to do is play.”
