Five Nominees For BBC African Player Of The Year Revealed

Speaking ahead of his team's clash with South American giants Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday night, the Three Lions coach told members of the media that if anyone is worth the exuberant amount, it's Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

"He is one of the best players in the world. We have to be set up right because counter-attack is one of their best tactics and then individually you have to defend well against him," he said at a pre-match news conference, according to BBC Sport.

"Is he worth £200 million? If there was to be someone worth that – it'd be him."

Southgate also spoke about the challenge his young side will face against the Selecao.

"This team (Brazil) are well down the road in knowing their best team, and they have some outstanding individuals and an immense physical presence," he added.

"They've annihilated everyone in the South American qualification, which is the hardest way to the finals so it will be a big test."
