Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is making the most of his Brazil working trip for the World Cup.

Pulis is part of the BBC's punditry team for the World Cup.

"I've got some really good games - Spain, Holland and Germany," said Pulis. "And I'll be able to go and watch those countries training, which will be useful for me.

"I won't be looking at players at those clubs as transfer targets! But I'm going to get a book off the BBC which has a rundown of all the squads. Everything at this level that can help us, you've got to use. They are very professional in the way they approach things. I'll be doing a bit of homework on the plane when I fly out there."
