Brazil legend, Pele has said that his country has no team yet for the World Cup that will kick off in a few days’ time in Russia.

Pele, who helped his nation to three World Cups, knows Brazil have a lot of individual talent, but is worried about the collective unit.

He said during question and answer session ahead of the tournament that, “I have the utmost confidence in Tite’s ability.

“My worry is about one thing; there are only a few days until the World Cup starts and we still don’t have the right team.

“Individually all the players are very good. But we’re not a team.

“Neymar is, to me, one of the best players in the world.

“Today he is more mature and he has more experience but he isn’t going to win the World Cup on his own. It’s teams that win the World Cup.

“The greatest Brazil team of all-time was the one in 1970, with Tostao, Rivellino, Gerson and Pele all wearing the No 10 shirts for their clubs.

“In the 1970 World Cup, we spent more than six months together. That’s why it worked.”
