Lazio midfielder pleased with call-up to Brazilian national team
The 27-year-old missed out on Brazil’s match against England in February due to a head injury suffered in the Coppa Italia, but he has declared himself ready on this occasion.
“I am very happy with this new opportunity,” Hernanes admitted to Lance Press.
“I was already happy with my last call-up, I had high hopes, but due to an ugly incident I lost the chance to go.”
“Fortunately I have recovered in a hurry, have been playing and this time I hope to show up and put in some great work to meet expectations.”
“I have played in six matches since my injury, of which four I played the entire game and I am fully recovered. Soon I will be able to play with no head protection, as I am now using it for precautionary reasons.”
