Hernanes is ‘not afraid’ of the pressure that comes with playing for Brazil at a home World Cup.
The Inter playmaker is part of the Selecao squad that will take part at this summer’s tournament.
And the trequartista has claimed that the whole group are happy to be considered one of the favourites for the title.
“We are not afraid,” he told the Times of India. “We are used to having a lot of pressure put on us whenever we play.
“I am delighted to be a part of this squad. For me, this is a dream come true. To have the opportunity to play at a home World Cup is amazing.”
Hernanes then commented on his first six months as a Nerazzurri player.
“I’ve been working hard ever since I joined. I want to bring the Inter spirit to Brazil if I can.”
