Roma veteran Maicon won't quit Brazil

AS Roma fullback Douglas Maicon says he remains available for Brazil selection.

Maicon was part of the Selecao's disastrous World Cup campaign.

"It depends on the Coach, if he still wants me there. I still love playing and the national team is valued by all the Brazilians.

"The people in the background have always supported us and I am very proud of how our fans have behaved after our defeat.

"It means that times change and that is why I say that Brazilians must have patience. In four years, this team will be very strong."
