Chelsea star Willian believes he must now prove himself at international level with Brazil following his successful Premier League campaign in order to become a regular again in the Brazilian national team.
“Every time I join the Selecao I try to maintain my good form and prove why I was called up,” he said.
“This time it’s no different, whether I am starting or not. The group is really strong, there are so many players qualified to start for Brazil and the competition for places is really healthy.”
Willian endured a difficult campaign in which he lost his mother at the beginning of the season and had to fight for a place in the team on his return, with Pedro already in hot form in the Brazilian’s absence.
He was still a huge part of the team as Chelsea went on to win the Premier League.
