Carlos names 2 good English players

Brazil has one of the most star-studded teams heading into the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and are favourites to lift the trophy.

The Seleção have a team full of established stars, and their attacking line-up is any manager's dream.

While Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos loves the look of the side, he does believe that two English stars are good enough to be included in the team, Football 365 reported.

Carlos makes World Cup prediction

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that legendary Brazil defender Roberto Carlos had given his prediction for the 2022 World Cup, which kicks off on Sunday, 20th November.

Carlos won the title with the Seleção in 2002, and his country has yet to win the top prize again. However, the South Americans have been dubbed as overwhelming favourites.

Still, their arch-rivals, two-time winners of the tournament Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, are expected to go all the way and possibly set up an iconic showdown with Brazil.
