Neymar praises Man Utd winger Sancho after England snub

Manchester United attacker Jadon Sancho has received praise from Brazil forward Neymar.

The Brazil talisman admits that he was surprised that Sancho was not in the England squad.

He believes that the creative winger, who can play on the left or right, has all the qualities to be an incredible player at international level.

Neymar said: “I really like (Harry) Kane and Sancho.

“They’re two incredible players and I have a special love for them because I like players that have their qualities.”

He added on his own dreams of winning the trophy: “The World Cup is my greatest dream.

“It has been since I understood what football was. Now I’m getting another chance so I hope to make it.

“The World Cup is full of surprises. You get teams that unexpectedly get very far even in the competition even if many don’t believe in them.

“But I believe the favourites are Argentina, Germany, Spain and France. I think those four along with Brazil are fully capable of reaching the final.”
