Barcelona star fullback Alves thrilled with rare Brazil start

For his high-profile in Europe, Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves made only his second competitive start for Brazil in this week's World Cup qualifier victory over Peru.

"I enjoyed it. I'm happy to have had an opportunity with the Selecao," said Alves. "My goal is to stay in the team. My job easier when playing with great players like those with the Selecao. I want to play in a World Cup.

"I hope I've made things difficult for Dunga. That's the goal of every player."
