The Brazil legend has tipped the Chelsea star to shine this summer.

In his column in The Guardian, Zico explained that Oscar’s creativity, technique and potential to score goals make him the young Brazilian that he will be most interested in at this World Cup.  

Zico said: "A lot of people in Brazil and around the world go on and on about Neymar and forget how important Oscar is for the Seleção. Tactically, he actually shares the creativity burden with Neymar.

"Oscar has amazing technique and I am impressed by how easily he constructs play. Oscar’s reading of the game is also developed and the way he positions himself for short passing exchanges is hard for markers to predict. His finishing can be elegant, as some of his goals in England and Europe prove."
