Brazil face enormous pressure - Lineker

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker believes hosts Brazil face a big challenge living up to the "enormous" expectations of their fans as they prepare to host the 2014 World Cup.

The former England striker thinks Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has done a great job improving team spirit within the squad - but says he "isn't so sure" they will win a sixth World Cup this summer.

The hosts take on Croatia in the opening match of the tournament at 21:00 BST on Thursday, 12 June in Sao Paulo.
