Seleção legend Ronaldo believes Brazil are almost ready for the FIFA World Cup.

The 37 year-old, who scored 62 goals in 98 appearances at international level, notes a lack of controversy over player selection has aided Brazil’s preparation.

“I think the team are looking pretty good,” he told FIFA.com. “There are none of the controversies we’ve had in previous years about certain players getting picked or not. 

“The best players are already there and the team is on the right track. The players just need to get motivated now for the World Cup, and Felipão [Luiz Felipe Scolari] is a great motivator. He’s very good at handling and managing teams, and he’s knows how to gee the players up and make sure they’re raring to go.”

Ronaldo won the World Cup twice with Brazil, in 1994 and 2002. He is also the tournament’s all-time top goalscorer, with 15. The 37 year-old last represented the Seleção in June 2011, against Romania, before retiring from football. 

Brazil find out who they will face in the group stages tomorrow at the draw in Costa de Sauipe.
