Coach Mano Menezes hopes to lead the Brazilians to their first Olympic title in London in August.
“It is a good team, with good players but not yet ready to overcome difficulties when they arise,” said Pele, who indicated he felt Neymar “has difficulty playing against a European or latin American” defender — more so than against Brazilian league rivals. “He stays stuck out there on the left,” added Pele.
