Theo Walcott says the current England squad is "the best that I have been part of".

The 23-year-old, who is hoping to win his 31st cap against Brazil on Wednesday, told BBC Sport: "The players I am training with are absolute world-class players. It is a very good squad.

"It is a young squad that is eager to do well and we have a great manager [Roy Hodgson] and great staff."

"The next step in my career is to get the England career back to where it should be," Walcott added.

"It's going to be difficult [against Brazil] as you are testing yourself against the best but I'm enjoying my football at the moment. I'm enjoying every minute and scoring goals."
