Brazilian football icon Ronaldo believes that his country are the favourites to win the FIFA World Cup in 2014.

Speaking after the hosts’ FIFA Confederations Cup final win on Sunday, the 36-year-old said that the success could be a stepping stone for Brazil to win the biggest title in international football for the sixth time.

Brazil beat current world champions Spain 3-0 to seal the Confederations Cup crown and Ronaldo, who scored 62 goals in 98 games for his nation, believes his countrymen can win the competition on home soil.

“I think that the Brazilian team is again the Brazilian team, the favourite to win the title,” he said.

“I think that the national team showed very good potential, it is again one of the main national teams in the world, (they) gained again respect, and I think they could do even better.”

Ronaldo is the top World Cup goalscorer of all time, with 15 in the three tournaments between 1998 and 2006, one ahead of German duo Miroslav Klose and Gerd Mueller.

Brazil are the most successful side in World Cup history but their last triumph came in 2002.
