West Ham midfielder Felipe Anderson desperate to make Brazil Copa America squad

West Ham midfielder Felipe Anderson is desperate to be part of Brazil's Copa America squad.

Anderson has his sights set on adding to his solitary cap by joining Neymar and co as they host the summer tournament on home soil.

Anderson, who recently earned his first Brazil call-up for four years, said: “It would be great to play the Copa America.

“The Brazilian shirt is special for every player that wears it and I want to keep on doing it for a long time.

“I had very good seasons in Lazio but this is a very difficult league and the team had a difficult situation because it had a lot of new players, so that has made it one of my best seasons in Europe.

"I have helped my team to get some wins and I'm happy to have adapted quickly to English football - a football with a lot of quality."
