Brazil left-back Marcelo says that the Selecao are not "worried" by the pressure placed upon the team at this summer's World Cup.

Brazil left-back Marcelo has insisted that the Selecao are not "worried" by the pressure placed upon the team at this summer's World Cup.

The South American outfit are the favourites to claim the trophy on their own patch this summer, but their performances in Group A thus far have been under-par.

Marcelo, however, is still confident that his team have what it takes to win the competition.

"Worried is not the word," he told reporters at a press conference.

"We are aware of our responsibility and every day the Cup gets more difficult.

"Every match is more difficult than the previous one, but still, I think we played better in the second match than in the first."

Brazil face Cameroon in their final group match on Monday.
