Jack Grealish likes what he saw from Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe at the World Cup but thinks Brazil are most likely to win glory in Qatar.
The England star spoke to talkSPORT ahead of the Three Lions’ final group game which will see them face Wales on Tuesday night.
England are almost through to the knockout stages with a defeat of four or more goals, the only way they can lose the top two spots in Group B.
Gareth Southgate’s men are one of the favorites to win the tournament, however, Grealish believes the five-time world champions are the team to beat.
The Manchester City star added how impressed he was with Lionel Messi, who scored a key goal in Argentina’s 2-0 win over Mexico, as well as Kylian Mbappe, who netted in both France group matches.
“I watch every game to be honest,” Grealish said. We have screens everywhere and it’s nice to have games all day.
“I looked at Messi, unbelievable. He just showed what he’s talking about in that second half, but again Mbappe did it too.
“I think there are a lot of brilliant teams, some teams have this player who is just unstoppable, but I think Brazil are one of the most impressive I’ve seen so far. They have so much talent, especially in the attacking areas.
“I think they are, if you ask me who the biggest threat is I would probably say Brazil.”
