Brazil captain believes England can win World Cup

The Brazil captain won the World Cup with Brazil in the 2002 tournament. The 32-year-old does not believe there are a clear favourite to win this summer’s World Cup.

“Brazil have done a very good job of preparation,” he said.

“We won the America’s Cup, Confederations Cup and we finished in first place in the South American qualifiers for the World Cup. But this does not mean we are favourites.

“Actually, I don’t see any favourites. There are many strong teams like Spain, Argentina, England, Italy, many others and also Brazil.”
