Pele says Lionel Messi isn't the best player in the world today _ much less of all time.
Pele is not happy with Brazil's national team and believes coach Mano Menezes was wrong to say that Santos forward Neymar needs to move to Europe to improve as a player.
Ronaldinho is back on Brazil's national team for the first time in 1 1/2 years, and young forward sensation Neymar is returning after an absence for disciplinary reasons.
Brazil striker Neymar is staying with Santos and away from the big-spending European clubs for the time being.
For those thinking the United States was near a breakthrough at the World Cup, Brazil's young, new-look team showed that the Americans still aren't close to catching up with soccer's elite.
Neymar scored on debut and Alexandre Pato added a goal late in the first half as Brazil beat the United States 2-0 in an international friendly Tuesday, the first match for both nations since their disappointing World Cup exits.
"If I'm not mistaken this is our best game yet," Neymar said. "Everyone deserves congratulations for their efforts until the end."
"It's important to start these tournaments with the right foot, with a victory," Neymar said. "I'm happy that I got to score, but the entire team deserves credit. We maintained our calm and showed we could battle back."
