Brazil secured a memorable 3-0 victory over Spain last Sunday to claim the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup title, but just how good is this version of the Selecao?
We will discover the answer to that question next summer when they attempt to secure a sixth World Cup title, this time on home soil.
However, in the meantime, we can get an idea of how good the side could potentially be by comparing the current side to the great Brazilian teams of the past.
As a team unit, they are still someway off equaling even some of Brazil's more underwhelming generations, but would do better in direct player-by-player comparison.
In this case, we will compare them to the 1970 side—possibly the best Brazilian side ever. Just how well can the current side compete? Let's find out!
