Barcelona star Neymar revealed he is elated to represent the Brazil national team again.

“I am elated to represent Brazil once again,” Neymar told Globo.

“I want to close this year with a flourish.

“We will work in the coming days to work out an ideal way to face the opponents.”

Neymar scored four goals against Japan in Brazil’s 4-0 win last month.

The 22-year-old forward has scored 40 in 58 senior international appearances for the Brazil national team.

Neymar arrived in Istanbul today ahead of the international friendly against Turkey on Wednesday 12 November 2014.

Brazil replaced Scolari with Dunga following an embarrassing 7-1 drubbing against Germany in the World Cup.

Dunga’s Brazil have beat Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Japan since his appointment.

The Brazil national team coach has selected a side comprising solely of footballers plying their trade in Europe.

Dunga will be without PSG winger Lucas Moura who is out with a bruised foot for the game.
