Adriano delighted at recall

Adriano has expressed his delight after being recalled by national coach Dunga for Brazil's upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The 26-year-old striker, who is currently on loan at Sao Paulo from Internazionale, has been included in a 25-man squad that will play a pair of friendlies in the United States before resuming their World Cup qualifying campaign next month.

The Selecao face Canada in Seattle on May 31 and Venezuela in Foxboro on June 6, before playing South American qualifying zone matches against Paraguay in Asuncion on June 15 and Argentina in Belo Horizonte three days later.

"Playing for the national team has been a goal for me since I came to Sao Paulo," said Adriano.
