Arthur's first goal for Brazil: 'Indescribable'

Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo scored his first goal for Brazil in the 2-0 win over Uruguay. ‘It’s an indescribable feeling’.

Brazil followed up a 1-0 win over Venezuela with an away win against Uruguay in the World Cup qualifier and Arthur was on the scoresheet for the first time with the Selecao.

“It’s an indescribable feeling,” Arhtur said, according to SportItalia. “I have been looking for it for a long time.

“It’s always special to score, but the first goal is even more special. Tite treats us all the same and is very close to his players.

“I knew I wasn’t being called up because I didn’t play for Barcelona. But I worked hard to get back here.”

The 24-year-old, who swapped places with Miralem Pjanic during the summer, has played four Serie A games for the Bianconeri this term and seven times across all competitions.

And the midfielder said he looks forward to ‘learn a lot’ from the Old Lady coach Andrea Pirlo.

“He’s a great coach,” he added. “He has great football knowledge, knows the feelings and emotions of the players on the pitch and is doing a great job.

“I have a lot to learn from him.”
