"Eu Quero Tchu, Eu Quero Tcha" (I Want Tchu, I Want Tcha), full title "Eu Quero Tchu Eu Quero Tcha (Tchu Tcha Tcha)" is a single by Brazilian Sertanejo universitário duo João Lucas & Marcelo, released in 2012, and written by Shylton Fernandes. The song was a hit in Brazil, following the success of similar songs such as Michel Teló's "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" and Gusttavo Lima's "Balada", though not as successful in Europe as them.

The soccer-themed official video of the song was filmed by Benza Deus Filmes and was directed by Cassius Cordero. It features a cameo appearance of Brazilian footballer Neymar. Neymar wearing the Brazilian national colours scores a penalty goal as the fans get crazy. He heads towards them and starts dancing (doing the Tchu Tcha Tcha). Everybody is jubilant and starts dancing as well as João Lucas & Marcelo start singing.
