Going to World Cup in top form, says Filipe Luis
Teresopolis (Brazil): Brazilian left back Filipe Luis, who plays for Atletico Madrid and is one of 23 players of the Brazilian team for Russia 2018, has said that he will arrive at the football World Cup in the best form.
"I had the chance to go to two World Cups earlier but I think I'm coming to Russia at my best, both mentally and physically," said the defender at a press conference after the Brazilian team's training session here on Friday, reports Efe.
"I'm very happy for this opportunity. Playing in a World Cup is what every footballer dreams of and when I left Brazil for Europe as a youngster, I
was thinking about that possibility," the Atletico footballer added.
Luis was excluded late from the list of those called up by then-Brazilian coach Dunga to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa due to a serious injury and, despite being one of the favorites, was not chosen by Luiz Felipe Scolari for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
