Giuliano wants Neymar's jersey

Created on 09 Oct., 2012 2:28 AM GMT

Giuliano has revealed his ambition is to bring back Neymar's jersey to Dnipro once his international commitments with Brazil are over.

The 22-year-old has been named in Mano Menezes' most recent party for upcoming friendly matches against Iraq and Japan, and will be looking to add to his tally of five Brazil caps in the near future.

However, according to the former Internacional midfielder who now plays in Ukraine, his immediate objective is to pry away the forward's shirt before next Tuesday, but jokingly warned his club-mates that he is in no mood for sharing.

"The players from my team came and said 'when you are with the Selecao, bring back a shirt from Neymar'," Giuliano told Globo Esporte. "And I responded, 'you will have to get in line'.

"It will be difficult but I will try to get Neymar's shirt. Only if I get it, it will be for me, not for them."

Meanwhile, Neymar himself suggests having Real Madrid star Kaka in the squad can only be a good thing for Brazil.

"It'll be nice. I hope he can help us. The experience he has will be very important for the national team. It can help us a lot. God willing, it will work," he said.

Brazil face Iraq on Thursday and then encounter Japan five days later.
