‘Neymar can lead Brazil to World Cup glory’

Brazil are among the favourites for next years World Cup in Russia and Neymar can lead the South American nation to their sixth title, former winner Roberto Carlos said on Tuesday.

The 44-year old former left back, who helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup as well as Copa America titles in 1997 and 1999, also believed that the country has recovered from a humiliating 7-1 semifinal defeat by Germany as the 2014 tournaments hosts.

The team has been reorganised since the debacle against Germany and we also have a new coach in Tite, hence I am confident the situation has vastly improved, he told a news conference in Serbias capital.

We have world class players and team leaders in Neymar, Willian and Thiago Silva. They are experienced and I am confident that Brazil have it in them to win the World Cup.

As a Brazilian, naturally I want Brazil to win the World Cup. But (world champions) Germany, Spain and Argentina will also be among the top
