On Tuesday night, Brazil face the Three Lions at Wembley Stadium as the South American side look to make a further statement ahead of the tournament in Russia.
However, Tite has praised the quality in both the England squad and the Premier League, claiming it makes Gareth Southgate's team a threat in next year's competition.
The 56-year-old is quoted by AFP as saying: "Even though Southgate has only had 13 games [as manager] so far, with Dele Alli, Kane and the experience of [Gary] Cahill, that tradition counts, so I see England as one of the favourites.
"I'm not just saying that because I'm here at Wembley, speaking in front of English people. Compared to Japan, the technical demands of [Tuesday's] game are going to be higher.
"Historically, England's [football is a mix between technical football, on the floor, but also physical contact, quality, short passing, triangulation. In the Premier League there are so many foreign coaches and different players. It's a very strong league with different styles."
England head into the match having recorded a goalless draw against world champions Germany on Friday night.
