Chelsea star insists he is constantly improving at the World Cup

Chelsea and Brazil forward Willian has insisted he is constantly improving his performances at every game he is playing during the World Cup this summer.

Brazil are through to the World Cup quarter-final, where they will face Belgium, after topping their group and beating Mexico 2-0 in the second round.

Willian played was a key role in their victory over Mexico, assisting the opener for Neymar with a low cross and looking dangerous in general throughout.

And the 29-year-old is confident his best is yet to come in the Brazil shirt as his country look to be improving with every performance as Neymar looks to be getting fitter and fitter.

“I’ve been improving with every game. If you start taking it easy, then you end up losing your place,” he told, “I knew it wasn’t going to be a natural process.

“It’s important for us to be able to play without the ball. We did that really well as a team, and we defended well.

“When we do that it makes everything easier, because we know how much quality we’ve got up front. We have players who can settle games in an instant.

Willian also revealed he has been given the nickname ‘O Foguetinho’ (the little rocket) by his coaches, something he believes fits his style of play well.

“The coaching staff have been calling me by that nickname and to be honest I’m delighted with it. It sums up the way I play.”
