Roberto Carlos impressed by Firmino's "great technical ability"

Brazil and Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino celebrates scoring the second goal with team-mate Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior during an international friendly between Brazil and Croatia at Anfield. Brazil

The string-puller will renew acquaintances with former Liverpool companion Firmino in Russian Federation as Brazil bid to win a sixth World Cup, and the latter is looking forward to teaming up with his friend once again.

Calls for him to play a prominent role in Russian Federation have started to build, but he is still not held in the same regard as a number of Selecao colleagues.

"I can't really explain it".

In doing so he won a place in the Brazil squad, and he'll hope to be given the opportunity to lead the line at some point for Tite-though there's a big part to play for Firmino in Russian Federation regardless of whether he starts or not.

"I left my home when I was young so I think that's probably the main reason - they haven't seen as much of me compared to other players".

"I may have a better status outside Brazil, but I don't worry about it too much".

In 54 games for Liverpool last season, Firmino was involved in 44 goals and was easily his best season to date.

The Liverpool forward followed up his goal against Croatia at Anfield with an assist for Philippe Coutinho in Sunday's 3-0 friendly win over Austria.

Speaking exclusively in the July 2018 issue of FourFourTwo magazine, Firmino says: "Everybody knows that Coutinho is a great footballer - here in England they call him "The Magician".

"He's made his choice to move to Barcelona but every time we meet playing for the Selecao, he's an exceptional guy that football has given to me".
