The Selecao defender is determined to see off Cameroon on Monday and top World Cup Group A, and says the hosts don't care who they face in the round of 16Brazil defender Dani Alves is adamant his team are aiming to finish top of Group A at the World Cup.
Chile or the Netherlands await Brazil, who are likely to need at least a point against Cameroon on Monday to seal their place in the last 16.
And the Barcelona man says the hosts are unfazed about who they would face in the round of 16, insisting their aim is to finish top of the group.
"We're not going to think that now with this possibility if it's better to come first or to come in second in the group," he said.
"We want to be first. Second is just there to congratulate who comes in first and that's not the point of being here. We can't think about choosing this or that.
"We have to follow our path. Our path is to finish the first group stage in first place, and who we face in the second phase we have to try to get them out and then after that get them out, and then get to the end.
"We can't think about this now."
