Tennis star Maria Sharapova posed with a Brazil jersey and tweeted a message to Chelsea star David Luiz congratulating him on booking a place on the plane to Brazil.

The four-time Grand Slam winner posted a photo on her official Facebook and twitter pages  holding a Brazil Football team shirt and wrote a caption: ''David Luiz congratulations for making the final squad! Working on how I can get yellow and green into my look ;)  #DareToBeBrazilian''.

David Luiz was bombarded with congratulatory message on social media but responded personally to Sharapova on twitter saying: Thanks for your support @mariasharapova, I really appreciate! #OuseSerBrasileiro"

Luiz was joined on the Brazilian squad by Chelsea team mates Willian, Oscar and Ramires.
