Southampton defender Jose Fonte is eyeing a Portugal World Cup breakthrough.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal take on Sweden next month in two play-off games to reach Brazil.

Fonte, 29, said: "I am not going to lie, playing in the Premier League and doing well can only get me closer. I am going to be trying my hardest to be there and there is no denying that.

"I hope I can be noticed and people will see the work I have been doing.

"If the call comes I will be the proudest man in Portugal."
