Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed why he chose to represent Italy instead of the nation of his birth Brazil.

Jorginho is a Euros winner with Italy, despite being born and raised in Brazil and has been capped 40 times for Italy since his debut in 2016.

“They tried to convince me, but in the end I chose Italy, otherwise I would have been ungrateful,” he told Globoesporte.

“It would not be bad to win the World Cup. The Champions League and the Euros can’t be underestimated, but the World Cup goes beyond anything else. We won’t be the favourite in Qatar, but we can’t even go unnoticed as we won the Euros.”
