Brazil defender David Luiz has revealed that he and his Selecao team-mates are relishing the prospect of potentially facing Spain in the Confederations Cup.
Both teams have enjoyed winning starts to their respective campaigns and, with a 14-year gap between the two teams' last encounter, the 26-year-old believes the tournament would serve as the ideal stage to host the clash - which could be in the semi-final or final.
"I think we all want to play against Spain. For me in particular, I love to play against them here [in Brazil]," David Luiz told a press conference.
"The Spanish are a great team at the moment. They are mature and play nice football. They have many great individuals and they are a really great team."
Meanwhile, the Chelsea centre-back looked ahead to Selecao's next test against Mexico and is expecting an arduous 90 minutes against Jose Manuel de la Torre's men.
"They are a really difficult team to win against and we know they will make things very difficult. For us it is a very important game because we can go top of the group with a win."
Luiz Felipe Scolari's men face the Mexicans on Wednesday at 21:00CET.
