Fiorentina goalkeeper Norberto Neto is targeting a call-up to the Brazilian national team in the near future.
The Viola shot-stopper endured a difficult early part of his Artemio Franchi career, but won fans over with some excellent displays last season.
“Patience is something I have had to learn to have with time,” Neto explained to Brazilian website Globoesporte.com. “It was something that I didn’t have but after a period on the bench with Fiorentina I learned to have it.
“With time I earned a starting place and recognition for my work. I think Europe has changed my style of play, compared to Brazil where I used my feet a lot more.
“It’s crucial for a good team to have a goalkeeper who take part in the match and be another alternative for the defenders.
“My thoughts are always to give my best, then I think the results will show themselves. My aim is to always play and to play well.
“Naturally, if I am then called up I would be very happy. The national team is one of my targets and the primary objective of every Brazilian.”
