Chelsea midfielder Oscar has said that the England national team players should be warned enough about the threat posed by new Barcelona signing Neymar. The Santos striker recently sealed a spectacular move to Barcelona after agreeing a contract for five years.
The 21-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world. Even though he has not been at his best in recent international matches with Brazil, Oscar believes that he will be able to show his true form against England.
Oscar himself only recently moved to England. He had just completed his first season with Chelsea, which has been a relative success after the team managed to win the Europa league and qualify for the Champions League group stages.
After having played more than 70 matches for club and country, Oscar has said that he is looking forward to getting a well-deserved break after the end of the confederations cup. He is expected to be a part of this tournament. Brazil will be taking on England at the new Maracana stadium, which has been completely renovated for the purpose of hosting the World Cup.
After several doubts, the game is finally set to take place at this iconic stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
“Neymar is a big player and his arrival at Barcelona will only increase the level of his game. That will be very good for Brazil in a year’s time. He is a spectacular player and moving to Europe will only help him develop his skill, ability and make him even better. Scolari is preparing this match with every detail. He has made it nearly an official match for us. Brazil needs to improve the image and England is a special test. Our fans deserve to see the best from Brazil before the Confederations Cup,” said Oscar.
