Luiz excited to take on Chelsea teammates at Wembley

David Luiz says he is looking forward to coming up against some of his Chelsea teammates at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Brazil take on England in a friendly as part of the Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations and the Blues defender is keen to test himself against the likes of Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and Frank Lampard whilst under returning manager Luiz Felipe Scolari.

"I have always wanted to work with Scolari. He is a manager that likes to motivate the players," he told CBF TV.

"I have missed playing for the national team, because it makes me proud to represent Brazil.

"It's a special game. I haven't had the opportunity to play against England, who have many quality players and some of them are my team-mates too."
