Dani Alves wants to compete in the 2022 World Cup

Former FC Barcelona right-back Dani Alves wants to represent Brazil in the FIFA 2020 World Cup slated for Qatar.

The 37-years-old has been an impactful player for São Paulo FC in his native Brazil and despite his European career seemingly being over, the defender still has plans with the national team.

Apart from the World Cup, Alves wants to represent his country in the Copa America this summer as he feels he still has a lot to contribute.

“The World Cup is a dream that I will not give up on; I will fight to keep myself at a high level and have that last experience in the national team. This is my challenge.

“It is not just a dream. I will compete. Now it’s time to work and build. What motivates me is competition and dreams. As long as I am alive, I will fight for my dreams,” Alves said in an interview with ESPN Brazil.

Alves is not on the preliminary roster for the Copa América or World Cup Qualifying fixtures but it will be up to the coach to decide whether he will be included in the list or not.
