Neymar: England nothing without Man Utd star Rooney

Santos star Neymar doesn't rate England as a World Cup threat. The Brazil superstar claims Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is Three Lions' ONLY matchwinner.

Ahead of tonight's Wembley friendly to celebrate the FA's 150th anniversary, Neymar said: "England are a good team with some very good players - but I don't look at them as one of our main rivals for the World Cup.

"Maybe they rely too much on Rooney - once you look past him you don't see an obvious player who can win them a match. But Brazil have got many players who can.

"England have players to do well - but do I think they have the same quality as Spain and Argentina? No.

"Look at Argentina. If Messi is not having a great game they still have Aguero and Tevez.

"And with Spain, if Iniesta is having an off day, they have got Xavi and Villa."
