Oscar says Brazil are the team to beat at World Cup
Chelsea and Brazil attacking midfiedler Oscar has told reporters that his side will be the team to beat at this year's World Cup and even said that it would be a national disaster should rivals Argentina claim the sport's biggest prize in July.
Speaking with goal.com.br, the 22 year-old former Internacional playmaker said: "I think for another team to win this World Cup, they'll have to beat Brazil. We will do everything to win and we will fight to the end."
"Moreover, we have the crowd on our side too, so to beat Brazil on home soil would be a historic and very difficult thing to do."
When asked about Messi and co., Oscar replied with a humourous: "Argentina will win if hell freezes over! They are a great team but Brazil will not let that happen."
The two sides have been given apparently reasonable draws for this summer's tournament and cold well meet at some point.
