The Southampton defender has never represented his country at full international level but he believes that his form in the Premier League could see him included in the group that heads to Brazil.
"I have my goals, I have my dreams and obviously I want to be in the World Cup," the 30-year-old told the Southern Daily Echo.
"It hasn't happened yet but I will keep working hard and looking forward to get my name on the list.
"I'm playing in the best league in the world against the best strikers in the world and we're doing well so I don't see why I shouldn't be considered."
Fonte made one appearance for the Under-21 team in 2006.
