Brazil boss Tite believes that England are one of the favourites to win next year's World Cup.
On Tuesday night, the Selecao face the Three Lions at Wembley with both sides looking to fine-tune preparations ahead of the finals in Russia.
However, Tite has praised the quality in both the England squad and the Premier League, claiming it makes Gareth Southgate's team a threat in next year's competition.
The 56-year-old is quoted by AFP as saying: "Even though Southgate has only had 13 games [as manager] so far, with Dele Alli, Kane and the experience of [Gary] Cahill, that tradition counts, so I see England as one of the favourites.
"I'm not just saying that because I'm here at Wembley, speaking in front of English people. Compared to Japan, the technical demands of [Tuesday's] game are going to be higher.
"Historically, England's [football is a mix between technical football, on the floor, but also physical contact, quality, short passing, triangulation.
"In the Premier League there are so many foreign coaches and different players. It's a very strong league with different styles."
