Pele: Brazil`s defence better than attack
Sao Paulo: Brazil will this year boast a stronger defence than attack for the first time in a World Cup, according to football legend Pele.

The 74-year-old cited Brazil`s absence of an in-form centre forward and relative dearth of play-makers as a concern less than three months before the tournament begins, reported Xinhua.

"We have always gone to World Cups with great attacks and weak defence but this time it`s going to be exactly the opposite," Pele was quoted saying by news service Uol Sunday.

The three-time World Cup winner rated Germany, Spain, France and Argentina as Brazil`s major rivals for football`s most coveted prize. He also warned England could cause a surprise.

"England won`t win the World Cup, but they have a team that must be respected," he added.
