Middlesbrough legend Juninho: Brazilian fans happy England in World Cup

Middlesbrough legend Juninho says Brazilian fans are excited England have qualified for the World Cup.

Juninho says Brazil will go nuts for the Three Lions next June.

"The public were really happy to hear England had qualified this week," the president of top-flight side Ituano told The Sun.

"I will be following them as my second team next summer and I think other Brazil fans will too.

"People here love English football more than ever. The Premier League is very popular here now. The television stations in Brazil are just showing more and more Premier League games.

"It is a different style of football to what the public here are used to and they love the energy of the players.

"Everyone in Brazil appreciates quality footballers, so they really appreciate players like Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard."
