Llorente: Tevez and I deserve Brazil

Juventus forward Fernando Llorente believes both himself and Carlos Tevez deserve to be going to the World Cup this summer.

The duo have been in fine form for the Old Lady this season but both could well miss out on being named in their respective countries’ squads.

“How is it possible that Tevez and I won’t play at the World Cup?” Llorente said to Sky. “The Italian League is difficult and competitive and we are hoping we can go to the World Cup.

“It will be difficult but we are doing well with Juve. Let’s see.

“If everything goes well maybe we will have something to celebrate.”

The Spaniard then commented on his side’s charge for the Scudetto.

“We are in a great situation but it’s still not won. There are still three matches left for us to win it mathematically, but we hope to do it as soon as possible.

“Is it the best year of my life? I don’t know but I’m having a great season.”
