England won’t win the 2014 World Cup claims Neymar
If England supporters manage to beat Brazil at Wembley tonight, supporters will start to dream that the Three Lions can go all the way in the 2014 World Cup next year.

Roy Hodgson’s team limped out of Euro 2012 at the quarter final stage after a series of underwhelming performances, although it won’t stop the fans getting excited should England qualify for the finals in Brazil.
However, one striker in the Brazilian squad certainly doesn’t think the Three Lions has what it takes to win a major tournament, with Neymar claiming that England aren’t among Brazil’s fiercest rivals.
The forward is currently on the books of Santos and attracting a good deal of attention from the top European clubs, with the youngster citing Argentina and Spain as a fiercer rival to Brazil.
“England are a good team with some very good players but I don’t look at them as one of our main rivals for the World Cup,” said Neymar, one of the most sought-after players in world football.
“Do I think they have the same quality as Spain and Argentina? No. I think maybe they rely on Wayne Rooney.
“Brazil have many players who can win the game and it’s the same with Argentina. If Messi is not having a great game, they still have Aguero and Tevez. If Iniesta is having a bad game, Spain have Xavi and Villa. Once you look past Rooney you don’t see an obvious player who can win a game for England.”
