Chelsea star Oscar: Big-game atmosphere 'like in Brazil'
For all the differences between the Brazilian and English games, Oscar believes the two countries can find common ground in at least one respect - the passion and atmosphere of big games.
Oscar, 21, will step back into the heat of battle this Sunday (16.00 BST) when the Blues take on perennial title-challengers Manchester United at Stamford Bridge and Oscar believes he will be prepared for the occasion.
"It is quite similar to Brazil,' he told the Blues official website. "You have the same things - the big crowds and the adrenalin is really unbelievable, you feel it rushing through you.
"I played in a city in Brazil where there are only two big clubs and Internacional versus Gremio was unbelievable - the pressure, the team atmosphere and everybody flying on the adrenalin. The big games against big opponents, those are the best games to play in."
Chelsea will have the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League if they beat the Red Devils, with the gap at the top currently four points.
