Chelsea midfielder Oscar believes that playing in Europe will make a home World Cup even more special this summer, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The 22 year old is set to release a book before the summer tournament explaining what life was like growing up in Brazil and how he has matured to become a wold class midfielder.

The impressive playmaker was in and out of Jose Mourinho’s side this season but is set to be a key man for his country as they host the biggest sporting competition in the world.

Oscar admits that playing in England will make going home even more special and that the crowd can push them on to glory.

“I’ve been playing in London, with Chelsea, for two years now,” Oscar said.

“For the many overseas Brazilian players like me, it will make a World Cup back home even more special.

“I know what it feels like to play in front of a Brazilian crowd. It’s important to recognise our responsibilities and take them seriously as players – but not to let the pressure inhibit us.

“When the whistle blows for kick-off, we have to make sure we let the joy in our football come through.

“We have to be true to our ideals and not let the scale of the event stop us playing the way we all want. If we do that, we know we’ll have 200million Brazilians on our side, cheering us on.”
