Chelsea loanee starlet in cheeky World Cup Tweet - Could he go?

Fifa World Cup Brazil

Lucas Piazon is excited as anybody about the World Cup being just 100 days away.

This summer sees the World Cup come to Brazil - and for those wanting to get excited about kick-off, it is now just 100 days away.

For one nation, failure is simply not an option, and that is the host nation Brazil.

Selecao come into the competition in good form - and after conquering the Confederations Cup last summer the expectation from fans will be as high as ever.

Under the stewardship of 2002 winner Luiz Felipe Scolari the Brazilian team are expected to conquer the world at home - if not, the consequences are incomprehensible.

Luckily for Big Phil he has a plethora of talent oozing in his squad pool - and the fact remains that many an in-form and top quality player is going to be told to stay at home - just look at Philippe Coutinho for example.

One such player is Lucas Piazon.

The youngster may be out on loan in Holland at the Blues farm club Vitesse Arnhem but he has been sensational this season.

He has bagged 11 goals and eight assists in the club’s title-chasing season - so is definitely in form - but could he go.

It seems unlikely - but does he think he has an outside chance.

He posted this picture on Twitter this evening - posing in a Brazil shirt and sending a cheeky wink…

With the message - #100 Days To The Cup.

Surely he doesn’t think he has a genuine chance of making it to the World Cup with the competition in front of him - perhaps this was a wink of excitement.

Or just letting everyone know who he felt would be winning the World Cup this summer - his home nation of course.
