Brazil coach Scolari big fan of England youth

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is a big fan of England's young players.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones and Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain particularly impress him.

Scolari said: "England beat us in London but they are struggling to get to the World Cup so it is an important game.

"The English team has good players and although they have not been not winning they have a renewed team and good technical players.

"You can see that the young players their coach has selected have responded well.

"In the last 10 to 15 years England has improved a lot technically and I think we will see a good game - not long balls.

"Now this coach has put many young players in his team and maybe now the national team for England is better than before, even if other teams are still ahead - Spain, Germany... maybe even Brazil..."
