Neymar unfazed by Brazil draw

Neymar insists there were plenty of positives from Brazil's 2-2 draw with England on Sunday and believes the Selecao "can only get better".

Paulinho salvaged a draw for Brazil at the Maracana after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wayne Rooney had cancelled out Fred's opener.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad have won just one of their last six international fixtures, putting pressure on the former Portugal boss leading into this month's Confederations Cup.

Brazil take on France in a friendly next weekend before beginning the tournament against Asian champions Japan and Neymar is confident his side's dominant performances will soon yield convincing results.

"It was a good match in terms of what we did on the pitch and the opportunities we created," he said. "Unfortunately, we didn't score during the first half spell of pressure. But now we can only get better, we will improve further.

"Every player in the squad has the quality to make important contributions for the team. Of course, I will be happier if I can get more touches on the ball, but as a team we are getting better.

"We are getting to know each other, understanding how the other players move on the pitch and the positions they take up. During the first half you all saw the amount of movement and the one-twos we displayed. We will get better."

Scolari also rejected suggestions Brazil underperformed in front of their home crowd, preferring to emphasise on the strength of Roy Hodgson's England.

"We were exceptional in the first half in terms of positioning, but in the second-half we did the one thing that I do not like - we gave them too much space," he said. "We allowed England to dominate, play their game and to score goals.

"The fans expected us to win. They wanted goals, they wanted this, they wanted that, but they do not realise how hard it is to play against England. They have many experienced players and they are already a complete team."

The starting line-up, which featured Neymar, Chelsea duo Oscar and David Luiz and Zenit striker Hulk, is likely to take to the field against France unless injuries force Scolari to make changes.

"The team that will start the match against France is about 90 per cent the one we lined up today, or even 100%, depending on training," Scolari added. "Some things will have to be worked out. Oscar, for example, has just played his 71st match in the season so we will make some decisions during the week.

"Fred is just coming back from injury, as is Luis Gustavo who arrived on Friday, so he may need more time to adapt."
