Southampton defender Fonte hoping for Portugal call

Southampton defender Jose Fonte has hopes of catching the eye of Portugal coach Paulo Bento.

Fonte says the thought of winning a place in next summer's World Cup squad is keeping the whole squad focussed, not just the English hot-shots.

Fonte said: "People want be on the plane to Brazil, so we have a lot to play for. In my case, I've been performing this season well and I just have to hope that he will be reminded of me, so we will see.

"I hope to go to Brazil, yes. To be honest, I have had no contact. But why can't I dream about it? If I keep playing, and keep playing well, I hope I have a chance at least to prove myself."
