Zico: ´Seleção will be very tough to beat´

The Brazil legend has said that Luiz Felipe Scolari´s World Cup squad is ´very strong´ but lacks tournament experience.

Zico sees advantages to the way that the national team is playing but is concerned that the majority of the squad have not made enough appearances at the highest level.

"Scolari's Brazil is a team that is very strong collectively; they put opponents under pressure. They go for the jugular from the start and try to get an early goal instead of waiting to counterattack. That helps with the supporters, who appreciate the boldness,” he told The Guardian.  

“My biggest worry is that this is a group where 17 out of 23 players have never played in a World Cup and two-thirds of our likely starting XI haven't even taken part in a qualifying campaign. That cannot be replaced by Champions League games, I'm afraid. But these are good players who as a group have become very tough to beat."
