Menezes: Brazil not at Spain's level
Menezes told reporters after Brazil's 6-0 thrashing of Iraq: "Today, we are not at the level of Spain. To this day nobody has been able to maintain their style against Spain.
"I think they are one of the best, alongside Brazil 1970. The best are those that do something different from others, and Spain have, three times."
The Seleção coach acknowledged the unique pressures of hosting a home World Cup in 2014 and says his side will cope:
"It is a unique experience, we're living in a hurricane. I'm building a team in a country where football is a passion, so I'm always between love and hate.
"We are in a race against time to make a team that can compete at the highest level, but I'm optimistic because I think we're improving on target."
The latest generation of Brazilian football took on Zico's Iraq last night and won 6-0 thanks to goals from Kaka, Hulk, Neymar, Lucas Moura and Oscar.
The Seleção's next fixture is against Japan in Warsaw on October 16.
