Chelsea midfielder Oscar has warned England to be cautious of new Barcelona signing Neymar during Sunday's friendly against Brazil.

Oscar believes that Neymar's move to Europe will only benefit the the 21-year old striker.

Neymar has already established himself as a worldwide star but Oscar thinks that playing at the Nou Camp and in the Champions League will enhance his career even more.

"Neymar is a big player and his arrival at Barcelona will only increase the level of his game," Oscar told the Mirror. "That will be very good for Brazil in a year's time.

"He is a spectacular player and moving to Europe will only help him develop his skill, ability and make him even better."

England beat the five-time World Cup winners at Wembley in February and Luiz Felipe Scolari's side will be looking for revenge.

Brazil hosts the Confederations Cup which begins on 15 June and Oscar insists that his national team are taking the friendly seriously.

"Scolari is preparing this match with every detail. He has made it nearly an official match for us. Brazil needs to improve the image and England is a special test."

He added: "Our fans deserve to see the best from Brazil before the Confederations Cup. I have much spoken with my team mates before the game on Sunday and I am convinced we can win."

The 21-year old midfielder has had an impressive first season at Stamford Bridge and believes the Premier League has also improved him as a player.

He's especially wary of England's ability and thinks his club team-mate Frank Lampard will pose a threat to the Brazil side.

"I am content with my performance in my first season in England. I believe that I have increased my level and now I want to carry on improving. Learning and playing with big players at Chelsea can only help." Oscar said.

"Lampard is such an important player for England. I am sure that with Frank on the pitch, the team has more danger in attack. He makes the team work."
