“Unfortunately these last two years, I had two serious injuries and the recovery took so long.
“I prepared my mind to return to action but it was a really long summer for me. I prepared myself for every circumstance.
“Yeah, I believe that I can be the best in the world, and help Brazil be the best in the world.
“There were disappointments, defeats, I made a lot of mistakes.
“I have been playing for the national team for almost 10 years and I have a lot of responsibility and carry a lot of pressure.
“I don’t hide any of this and if you look at my 10 years, I have developed a good chapter here. I had my time when I was a junior player and now, I am one of the most important players in the world.
“This is not a lack of humility. I think no one here is jealous about that and it was the same with me. I wasn’t jealous about this kind of players when I was a young player.
“If you are persistent, you believe in the battle, you can be victorious in the end. I’m very happy to reach the 100-cap mark.”
