Lazio playmaker Hernanes not giving up on Brazil recall

Lazio midfielder Hernanes isn't giving up on playing for Brazil again.

Hernanes is determined to regain his place in the national team in anticipation of making the World Cup.

"I'm not offended for not being called up to the London Olympics. I think that I have regained the trust of Menezes, although I didn't get called up to recent friendlies," reflected the playmaker to La Repubblica, as he rejoined the Aquile for pre-season preparations.

"Going to London was difficult since there were only three places available for over-age players. But, who knows that I won't be playing in another Olympics?

"The 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics are my two dreams right now. I would like to take part in both. I have four years to make a run at this and to jolt my career."
