Diego Cavalieri wants to convince Dunga to play with Brazil
Former Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri wants to convince the Brazil coach Dunga that he can play in the Brazilian squad.
He has not been selected for the Copa America, and he finds himself almost 4th in the pecking order. However, he has not lost hope that one day he will be able to represent Brazil.
At the moment, Diego Cavalieri is behind Alisson, Diego Alves, and Ederson. He believes that with the long qualifying campaign coming just after the Copa America he may have a chance to prove that he is worthy of representing Brazil on the world stage.
Diego Cavalieri, who currently plays for Fluminense, believes that he has the potential to represent Brazil and that he will do everything he can in order to get a place in the Brazil team. So far he has made only 3 appearances for Brazil and hopes that he will be able to increase this number soon. His last appearance for the Brazil national team was in 2012, and he has yet to be called by the current coach Dunga.
Diego Cavalieri will be best remembered when he played in the English Premier League for Liverpool in 2008. He was signed for a fee of around £3 million from Palmeiras. He could not establish himself as the first team goalkeeper and had to satisfy himself with appearances in club competitions. He never played in the Premier League for Liverpool but did participate in the League Cup, FA Cup as well as the Champions League and the Europa League. He left Liverpool only 2 years later as he failed to replace Pepe Reina as the first team keeper and signed for Cesena where he will stay only 4 months. He will then return to Brazil to play for Fluminense.
