England midfielder Frank Lampard believes his international teammates, who have moved confidently to the brink of qualifying for the World Cup finals, would not look out of place playing for Brazil.
The Chelsea man insists that Fabio Capello’s team are serving up football with a flair and style which would not look out of place in Brazil or even European champions Spain.
He added that Brazil would be tempted to buy England players if international rules allowed.
“I think they would,” Lampard said. “I’m certain they would look at some of the players because we’ve got top, top players who perform in Champions League and are some of the best in the world.
“You’re talking about Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand. Those guys could be compared to any player in the world and I’m sure teams like Brazil would want them in their teams.”
