Oscar convinced Chelsea can be world champs

Chelsea midfielder Oscar is convinced they can be crowned world champs in Japan this week.

English teams do not have a great record in the Club World Cup, but Oscar is confident.

"In Brazil, this has always been seen as the opportunity for our clubs to play one of the big European teams," said Oscar.

"It's the chance to test themselves against a big team from Europe and to go and show their football to the world. For years, it was the only way they could face a stronger team, a different team from a different culture.

"The South American teams have always taken this competition seriously but I think all the big clubs will go to Japan this year and give everything.

"For Chelsea, we are representing Europe and we are going there with a determination to do it well. We are going to try to win this competition this year."
