'Brazil need to improve'

Brazil have a long way to go if they are to add a sixth World Cup victory to their collection on home soil next year, striker Neymar believes.

In an interview with German press agency SID, a subsidiary of AFP, after the 2-1 defeat by England at Wembley, Neymar said the Brazilians needed to improve their team game.

"We tried everything we could, but it wasn't enough," said the 21-year-old, billed as the new Pele.

Brazil have slipped alarmingly down the world rankings in the past two years and are now a lowly 18th.

"As host country we will be under a lot of pressure but maybe our fans can carry us to victory," Neymar added.
