"We are strong in our beliefs and have been from the outset". O'Neill addeed: "I think Brazil will win it".

"Some things I hadn't even seen, the incident with Raheem and one of their staff - I've never seen a game like this before and how they behaved", he said. "For the first time I feel we meet a country who's more or less on a par with us in that respect", he said.
