Brazil Coach Mano Menezes has admitted that Spain are currently the best team in the world, and his Brazilian side can only hope to catch up with them. .
Vicente del Bosque had said earlier on Thursday that it was 'hard to tell' whether La Roja were the best team ever, but his Brazilian counterpart has no such qualms, putting the current Spanish team on a pedestal with Brazil's famous 1970 side.
- Today, we are not at the level of Spain, to this day, nobody has been able to maintain their style against Spain. Menezes mused in an interview with Marca.
- I think they are one of the best, alongside Brazil 1970. The best are those that do something different from others, and Spain have, three times.
Having won the last three major international tournaments, Spain are favourites to win the 2014 World Cup also.
