Southampton defender Fonte not giving up on World Cup dream

Southampton defender Jose Fonte retains hope of breaking into Portugal's World Cup squad.

He is enjoying the best season of his career but has had no contact from Portugal's head coach, Paulo Bento.

Fonte, 30, told the Daily Echo: "I have my goals, I have my dreams and obviously I want to be in the World Cup.

"If I didn't I wouldn't be ambitious, what would be the point of playing in the Premier League?

"It hasn't happened yet but I will keep working hard and looking forward to get my name on the list.

"I'm playing in the best league in the world against the best strikers in the world and we're doing well so I don't see why I shouldn't be considered."
