Brazil legend Ronaldo has tipped his home country to win the World Cup behind the talents of Neymar.
Ronaldo led the Selecao in securing its last Jules Rimet trophy in 2002, the country's 5th. Brazil last hosted the tournament in 1950, losing to Uruguay in the final.
"Brazil has a great chance to win the World Cup, not only because we will play in our home country but because we have a very good team," Ronaldo told The Sport Review.
"Recently we played in the Confederations Cup and demonstrated what we can do. We have a solid defence, a midfield that battles very hard and great goal scorers.
"We are at home with our fans and have an exceptional player in Neymar, so we have everything in our favour."
At only 22 years of age, Neymar is the 11th all-time leading scorer for Brazil (31 goals in 48 appearances), while Ronaldo is the 2nd on the all-time list (62 goals in 8 appearances).
"I've never had the chance to play and win a World Cup in Brazil, but it will be a wonderful sensation to play in your home country and to win it would be incredible," added Ronaldo.
"The pressure will be greater than normal but the fans support will spur the team on."
Brazil will take on Croatia in the first game of the tournament at 22:00 on Thursday, 12 June.
