Seleção star David Luiz hails 'complete' Paulinho

Gazeta Press

Seleção star David Luiz says Paulinho would be a big success in England as the Corinthians star continues to be linked to Tottenham.

Paulinho grabbed the winner in a 2-1 win over Uruguay as Brazil advance to the Confederations Cup final and Luiz says they are improving all the time.

"Paulinho is a fantastic player, both defending and attacking. He is complete, so he can come to England. It's a great moment for him."

Luiz also feels the squad are continuing to improve as they advance in the tournament as they prepare to face either Spain or Italy in the final.

"It's growing game-by-game but sometimes you cannot play the game you want with a lot of opportunities and a lot of possession," Luiz explained.

"But that's why the Brazilian team is now more mature, because it can play open games or games like today, which was a very different game.

"I think Uruguay did a great job with two lines deep so you can't create a lot of opportunities to score but the team has matured well.

"It's a dream come true [to reach the final]. I think it is a special moment for us, but we want to win.

"I am so happy because I can play a final with Brazil in the Maracana. Whether we play against Spain or Italy, it will be a difficult game for us."
