PELE: NEYMAR AND MESSI CANNOT WIN THE WIN THE WORLD CUP ALONE
Neymar and Gabriel Jesus will improve Brazil's chances but it takes an entire team to win the World Cup, according to Pele.
Pele, one of football's most iconic players, knows exactly what it takes to win the World Cup, having starred in winning teams in 1958, 1962 and 1970. Asked if the presence of Neymar could make the difference, he said: "Listen, this is very difficult to say because today people mention one or two good players, but who won the game and [the] World Cup is the team. Individually it is difficult to say people [did it].
Sometimes one team have a better one [player]. To win the World Cup, or to win the game it has to be a nice team not just one player." Of Jesus, who impressed upon his arrival at City last season, Pele added: "He's a good player too.
The same as Neymar, [but] he's just started. I think Neymar has a little more experience than him, but both have the same style of game. But they are both two forwards that will give Brazil success in the future."
