Neymar: 'England aren't a threat'
Brazilian forward Neymar reveals that he does not consider England as a "threat" for next year's World Cup.

Brazil striker Neymar has insisted that England will not be contenders for next year's World Cup.

England face Brazil in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday evening, and while Neymar has admitted that he has respect for Roy Hodgson's team, he does not consider them as a "real threat" at next year's tournament.

The 21-year-old told The Sun: "I have respect for a lot of the England players as they have achieved great things at their clubs.

"But, as a national team, I don't look at England and think they are going to be a real threat at the World Cup. We want to win the World Cup in front of our home fans and the two nations I look at as a real threat are Germany and Spain.

"After that it's a group including Argentina, Holland, Italy and one or two more. But England, I don't even think about."

The Barcelona forward has scored 20 goals in 32 appearances for Brazil.
