    Hi, Jon.

    Just wondering what your thoughts are on Porto’s left-back, Alex Sandro’s future with the national team?

    I know he’s been capped a few of times (5 I think), but not in 2013.

    Does he feature in the manager’s plans at all and what’s the chances of him making the squad for the World Cup? Or would Scolari not call up a player from the Portuguese League (I know a few have in the past)?

    By far one of the best defenders in the league, great going forward, too. I know Brazil are covered in that position, but he could be a good back-up option, I reckon.

    Early days yet, I know. WC isn’t for a few months. Just curious to hear an expert-opinion plus it won’t be that long before the Scolari will start seriously considering his [potential] squad.

      Hello Andrew
      it would appear that Alex Sandro is out of the reckoning – at least for now.
      I don’t think there’s a problem with Scolari picking anyone who’s playing in Portugal. After all, he’s brought in a reserve striker who’s playing in the one of the weakest attacks in the Brasileirão (Pato) and a centre-back who’s currently in what is a very weak Série B (Henrique)
